The price range of models sold on the Polish market is very wide.The cheapest fully electric car offered in Poland is the Škoda CITIGOe iV, available from PLN 82,050, excluding subsidies from the support programs of the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management. At the opposite end of the spectrum is the Porsche Taycan Turbo S, with prices starting at PLN 794,000.

In the range category, vehicles such as the Tesla Model S Long Range (652 km), Tesla Model 3 Long Range (582 km) and the Volkswagen ID.3 with a 77 kWh battery (546 km) are in the lead. The catalog shows that the average BEV range of all-electric cars is approximately 380 km (WLTP).
A similar trend can be observed in the PHEV segment. The ranges of the current generation plug-in hybrids often exceed 50 km in Zero Emissions Mode (WLTP). The record holder in this field is the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 e, which can, in theory, drive 89 km on electric power. It is followed by the BMW X5 xDrive45e (77 km), as well as the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, Mercedes-Benz A 250 e and Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 e (65 km each).
The EV market is changing very dynamically, and new vehicles with electric drive are regularly sold, which is why PSPA has also launched a constantly updated online version of the catalog as part of the electromobilni.pl social campaign (https://elektromobilni.pl/baza-pojazdow/) . The elektrobilni.pl campaign is one of the most comprehensive initiatives in Europe, the goal of which is to educate and increase social awareness in the field of the development of zero-emission technologies in transport.
