Car manufacturers themselves seem to The key is to do this without frightening away. Customers must be and not rushed too fast, said Steyer, in charge of developing cars at Renault.

Maybe is room for something very to rewrite the design rules can be found from electric. So far we can t it, though. But it is certainly possible in the thanks to the changes and possibilities of technology, he told a conference in recently.

Reaching out to consumers

Raising awareness is the key. has to be done to explain to consumers the of new low-carbon technologies, Kraus this week s annual FIA Club Conference in Estoril, (18 May).

In the meantime, other means of transport emissions like and fostering eco-driving skills can a key role in improving energy in the sector, the organisation said in a released after the meeting.

Indeed, the global transport is 96% dependent on oil and is one of the largest emitters of putting carmakers under pressure to reduce the negative that their vehicles on the environment.

However, the lack of a EU-wide recharging structure and system for electric vehicles is holding back its development.

bodies and industries need to on common standards and protocols for charging systems and arrangements, and the market must provide for between different service the FIA said in its declaration.

More still, consumers must be aware of the existence of electric

The role of the user is central for market entry: they to be fully informed on the different available, stressed the FIA, communication, education and raising as the biggest challenge facing distributors and policymakers alike.
