🌱 Europ Assistance Presents its Third Belgian 🇧🇪 Mobility Barometer 🚗🔋

Updated: Apr 26

Despite new incentives, Belgians face obstacles in embracing sustainable mobility. Since 2022, Europ Assistance has tracked Belgians' attitudes towards eco-friendly transport. How have perceptions shifted? And why does Europ Assistance conduct this mobility barometer?

Key Highlights of the Mobility Barometer

  •  Only 25% believe in a 2035-2040 shift to electric mobility.

  • 71% find daily life without a car unrealistic.

  • 48% plan to buy electric, but 22% are certain not to.

  • Pricing and infrastructure are top barriers.

  •  - 52% are willing to spend €32,500 on an electric vehicle.

Belgians and Sustainable Mobility

  • Majority favor eco-friendly transport.

  • Urbanites feel their habits are more sustainable.

  • Only 40% reduce fossil fuel car use for the environment.

Belgians and Legal Constraints:

  • 38% are enthusiastic about political decisions.

  • 27% feel policymakers impose too many constraints.

  • Older and rural residents find the transition challenging.

Belgians and Electric Cars:

  • 24% believe full electric mobility won't happen before 2035.

  • 48% plan to buy electric, driven by ecological conviction.

  • Price, charging stations, and energy crisis are top obstacles.

Belgians and Soft Mobility:

  • Daily car use remains prevalent.

  • Soft mobility grows for leisure and private trips, less for commuting.


Belgians are ready for sustainable mobility, especially the young and urban dwellers. Addressing safety concerns, providing clearer communication, and financial incentives are crucial to engaging sceptics and enhancing public enthusiasm for alternative modes of transport.

Information is key in this transition towards sustainable mobility. For this reason, I inform you every week of the challenges of this transition. To support this post? Please like, share and comment.
