Join Us on the e-Mobility Journey
As the world moves towards decarbonization, Enel X makes joining the e-Mobility journey easier than ever. We are committed to building public and private charging infrastructure and offering scalable, smart, innovative solutions that overcome usage barriers and create sustainable and shared value for everyone, everywhere. We enable people, businesses and cities to take part in this shift easily and conveniently, by delivering a seamless experience for all electric vehicle (EV) drivers. From homes to streets to businesses, we strive to set a new standard for EV infrastructure, partnering with industry leaders to deliver complete end-to-end solutions worldwide.
Electrification is set to reshape the global automotive market over the coming decade
There are now almost eight million EVs on the road worldwide and the trend will continue to increase
Analysts expect EV sales to grow exponentially, reaching a 32-47% market share by 2030
Debunking 10 Myths about e-Mobility
False: Electric vehicles don’t have enough driving range.
True: A traditional car has a daily average range of 40-60 km, never exceeding 200 km in 95% of cases. EVs that are currently on the market can meet almost any driver’s needs.
2. Charging Points
False There aren’t enough EV charging points.
True: Most EV charging happens while your vehicle is parked at home or at the office. Enel X manages over 180,000 public and private charging points worldwide, of which more than 12,800 are owned, installed and directly operated by Enel X in Europe. The goal is to manage 780,000 public and private charging points worldwide by 2023.
3. Charging Speed
False: Charging an EV or e-motorbike is slow and difficult.
True: Existing charging infrastructure grants a range of up to 400 km in under an hour. An Enel X JuicePump can fill up an electric vehicle in almost 20 minutes.
False: EVs are very expensive.
True: Considering the overall expenses involved in owning a car – including indirect incentives – an EV has the most economical power supply per operational costs. These costs are bound to decrease even more.
5. Battery Space
False: Batteries are bulky and take up too much space.
True: On cars originally designed as battery electric vehicles (BEVs), battery packs are strategically placed to avoid affecting the roominess of their cabins. Electric powertrains are less bulky than electrical combustion powertrains, allowing for more rational use of internal spaces.
False: EVs are small and there are only a few models available.
True: Manufacturers worldwide are currently producing many more car and bike models. They are also investing constantly in innovation, efficiency and design. Customers will have over 500 models to choose from by the end of 2022.
7. Network Capacity
False: The electricity network is not enough to cover e-mobility energy requirements.
True: The chargers installed and managed by Enel X are smart and interconnected, so the whole ecosystem can sustain an increasing quota of fully electric vehicles.
False: EVs consume a lot of energy.
True: EVs consume way less than traditional cars, because they are three times more efficient. An EV actually needs three times less energy than a thermic vehicle, and covers three times the distance an oil-fueled car can.
False: EVs pollute because they consume energy from fossil fuels.
True: 100% of the energy supplied by Enel X-owned charging points in Italy comes from renewable sources.
False: EV batteries are polluting.
True: Nowadays we have consortiums dedicated to second-life battery projects, that are equipping themselves to refurbish lithium batteries for use as energy accumulators in solar panels and to recover and recycle precious elements such as lithium, nickel and cobalt in order to avoid dispersing them into the environment.
