An EV in the family: urban transportation systems
2000 (English)In: Urban transport systems: proceedings from the 2nd KFB-Research Conference, Lund, Sweden, 7-8 June, 1999, Lund: Lund Universitet , 2000Conference paper (Refereed)
Earlier research has revealed that most people are able to use electric vehicles (EV's) for daily travel but also that peoples' attitudes toward and purchase willingness of EV's are. However, in these studies attitudes and purchase willingness were measured in respondents not having knowledge or experience of EV's. To avoid this, a field study in which families use EV's during 3 months is set up. Attitudes and purchase willingness are measured before, during, and after EV use and in-depth interviews are made to capture the adaptation process to the EV's. Furthermore, vehicle trips and recharging times are logged. The results from the interviews show that the respondents experienced the EV's as more useful for shopping and visiting trips, as safer, and maintenance as less difficult after than before. The results from the logging show that the EV's were used in 64.1 % of the total number of trips, in 48.7 % of the total distance, equally often by males and females, and most often for shopping and work trips.
