The transition to electric cars can be harmful, says the EU

The transition to electric cars may end up doing more harm than good in Europe. Especially because the current course makes the EU more dependent on China, warns the EU Court of Auditors.

The EU will force the transport sector to reduce CO2 emissions quite drastically. Therefore, the union's motorists must, among other things, are prohibited from buying anything other than new electric cars from 2035.

But the transition to electric cars may turn out to do more harm than good, warns the EU's own auditors – the so-called Court of Auditors.

The European Court of Auditors ECA is, however, concerned that it sends the union even more into the arms of, among other things, the Chinese than is the case today.

This is stated in a press release .

Among other things. because battery production, at least when it comes to those in electric cars, is very small in the EU. Especially when compared to the production of batteries in China.

This disparity puts additional pressure on the European car industry, which currently employs up to 3 million people.

However, this is not because the alternatives to the electric car are much better. Quite the contrary, the review by the European Court of Auditors shows.

The production of biofuels does not work on a large scale, the auditors believe. And the synthetic petrol – the so-called e-fuel – is far too expensive.

– Since biofuels are not available in large quantities, they cannot be a reliable and trustworthy alternative for our cars, says member of the audit court Nikolaos Milionis.

In other respects, the European Court of Auditors insists that the emissions from cars have hardly fallen. This is simply because there are more cars on the roads.

There is also not enough speed in the installation of charging stations for the infrastructure to keep up with the number of electric cars that are rolling out onto European roads these days.
