Mobility of the Future

Mobility of the Future

Modern urban transport should be ecological, sustainable, connected and accessible. These are the goals that we support and create the conditions for them in Prague. The main tools are digitization, intermodal travel (MaaS - Mobility as a Service) and the development of electromobility. Digitization further acquires and connects data, which it uses for intelligent transport planning and management.

Electric Vehicles (EV) and Parking Authorization for EV

The graph shows the continued trend of increasing the number of EVs and parking permits for EVs. Absolute numbers also show the greater strength of the trend.

*These are all vehicles that meet the legal requirements for obtaining an "EL" registration plate.

Development of the number of registered EVs and all vehicles

In the given graph, the trend of growth in the number of all cars registered in the territory of the capital city of Prague is obvious and all vehicles with the registration mark "EL".

Number of Charging Stations Availability

The graph shows the trend of increasing number of charging stations (EVSE for short), both slow (AC) and fast (DC). The availability of charging stations is still increasing and when converted to the area of Prague, it is less than 1 km2 per charging station.

*The ratio of the sum of AC and DC EVSE points to the total number of EVSE points on the territory of the capital city of Prague differs in 2022 due to commercial confidentiality of one of the data providers.

Development of energy consumed during EV charging

The graph shows the number of charges and the amount of energy consumed. You can see the higher number of charges for fast charging (DC), which has its significance. If you charge faster, you transfer more power faster, and then another customer can use the charging station. This is the basic principle of how charging stations work. The difference in the number of charges between AC and DC is lower than in previous years and so we can see that slow charging is growing in Prague.

Distance Made of Buses and Electric Buses in Kilometres

In Prague, there is a growing trend of development of electromobility in public transport. In 2021, there was a significant decrease in demand from private customers, and for this reason the number of e-buses in 2021 is about 2/3 lower than in the previous year.

The Evolution of the Number of Buses and Electric Buses

Electromobility is also a topic in public transport, and this trend is developing in the case of buses. The continuous renewal of the DPP (public transport) fleet also has a significant impact on the number of e-buses in the capital city of Prague.
