Abstract [en]

With the increasing rate of pollution from transports with fossil fuel, greater active action is required in the form of many measures from the global community to reduce the use of diesel and gasoline driven vehicles. The purpose of the study was to examine the public awareness and attitudes towards electric driven vehicles, as well as the factors important to the public when purchasing such vehicles. At the same time, a survey was carried out to identify possible differences in attitude between individuals who had electric driven vehicles and those who had gasoline or diesel driven cars. Finally, the government subsidies were examined in order to evaluate whether they affect the public willingness to buy electric driven vehicles. The survey was conducted in Sweden and was based partially on a poll and partially on interviews. The result of this study showed that there is a great interest for the general public towards electric driven vehicles, and the majority who took part in the survey was aware of the positive effects of electric driven vehicles. The comparison between the two groups showed that there is a significant difference between the attitudes to the electric vehicles. Among other things, there are differences regarding the electric vehicles' future in Sweden and also differences in the attitude to the price of the electric vehicle. However, there is no difference between the attitudes of the two groups regarding environmental friendliness and the importance of the state subsidy.
