Electric vehicle market potentials - User acceptance, total costs of ownership, and changes in mobility behavior

Schäuble, Johannes; Ensslen, Axel; Jochem, Patrick; Fichtner, Wolf

The need to decrease oil dependency and environmental pollution as well as adapting to new emerging mobility needs within societies is an essential objective for politics and economy. Until now, in road transport, one of the most relevant sectors in this respect, oil consumption and emissions are still increasing and are going to do so in the following decades. Hence, all efforts underachieved their targets so far. Only a technological or social breakthrough seems to have a chance to achieve the objectives. A broadly discussed technology is the electrification of the car and, furthermore, first evidence of social changes with respect to car ownership and usage of multimodal integrated mobility services could be observed. From our perspective both developments fit very well together. The higher invest and lower variable costs of the electric vehicle (EV) support the tendency to car sharing approaches and make them more affordable. However, these changes lead to an impact on the automotive industry, policy, society, new stakeholders and the corresponding international industrial context, which might lead to a moderation of a market pe ... mehr
