Towards E-Mobility: The Challenges Ahead

Publication date: 21 March 2011

Consumers will not automatically make the switch to electric vehicles if running costs are high, a recharging station network is not in place, or if new technologies are not user-friendly, according to this new policy paper by the FIA European Bureau.

While the paper ‘Towards E-Mobility: The Challenges Ahead’, says that electrification of the vehicle fleet provides a major opportunity for decarbonising transport, “...the deployment of eMobility will depend not only on specific technologies that will be adopted, but on the ability to organise and manage operations of a complex landscape of players: car manufacturers, battery producers, mobility service providers, energy suppliers and distributors, and institutions”.

The paper is being released in advance of the anticipated release of a new European Commission White Paper on Transport as well as the entry of several new electric vehicles into the market in the coming months.
