Poland Drives e-Mobility
In 2022, over 34,000 battery-electric cars (BEV) were registered in Poland. This is almost three times more than in 2020 and almost six times more than in 2019. Over the last 12 months, the Polish EV fleet has grown by about 2/3.
In 2022, a record was also broken in terms of the number of newly installed charging stations. 633 public charging stations (1,232 points) were deployed in Poland, i.e. 11% more than in 2021.
However, the Polish potential in the field of e-mobility is much greater. Based on the forecasts of the Polish EV Outlook, by 2025 there may be over 430,000 electric cars on Polish roads, and the infrastructure network will increase to almost 42,000 points.
During New Mobility Congress 2023, among the leading stakeholders of the European e-mobility market, we will talk about how to use this potential.
I invite everyone to actively participate in the congress.

The Polish e-mobility sector is currently at the initial stage of development. Due to the size of the Polish automotive market and the significant potential for its electrification, this is an opportunity for foreign e-mobility companies implementing investments in Poland. Already in 2025, BEV’s share of the new passenger vehicles market in Poland may reach nearly 15%, i.e. higher than the EU average in 2022.
Electrification of the commercial vehicle sector
There are more than 6.2 million medium and heavy commercial vehicles on EU roads, up 1.7% compared to 2019. With around 1.2 million trucks, Poland has the largest fleet by far.
Poland as the European center of heavy road transport
One in every 5 trucks and vans with a GVW over 3.5 t in the EU is registered in Poland
In 2020 Polish carriers transported almost 330 million tons of cargo
Expansion of the public charging station network
At the end of 2021, there were only 1,932 public charging stations (3,784 points) in Poland. Considering the very dynamic development of the EV fleet and the size of the automotive market, the Polish charging infrastructure network has a great potential for expansion.

Private charging station market
Over 80% of EV drivers in Poland prefer to charge their vehicles at home or at work. Along with the forecasted dynamic development of the EV fleet (over 500,000 registered BEVs and PHEVs in total by 2025), the private charging station market will grow significantly in the coming years.
Lithium-ion battery sector
Lithium-ion batteries account for over 2% of total Polish exports. The value of exports in this sector increased from approximately PLN 1 billion (EUR ca. 211 million) in 2017 to nearly PLN 30 billion (EUR ca. 6,3 billion) in 2021.
Shared mobility projects
In 2021, over 25 million passenger cars were registered in Poland. One shared vehicle could replace up to 7-11 private cars. Meanwhile, there are less than 1.5 thousand electrified cars on Polish roads available in car-sharing systems. In few cities, the services of sharing scooters, bicycles and electric mopeds are also available, although the micromobility market is developing very dynamically.
