Abstract
Cities, businesses and governments have recognized the value of Electric Vehicles (EV) in building a cleaner, smarter and more sustainable future. This study is focused on users? perception of EV and its impact on users? mobility. The main problem EV users report is its limited autonomy compared to Petrol-Fuelled Vehicles (PFV), a factor causing range anxiety to users. A 3-months experiment has been conducted in the UPM in order to study the academic population. The sample size is 48 people, equally distributed between men and women, students and workers and private car and public transport users. Every user used the EV for a day and was controlled and evaluated through a customized on-line survey, where different aspects were rated on a scale from 1 to 5. The main outputs of the analysis of results are: ? The general experience of EV drivers has been positive (4,5). ? Lack of noise (4,9), acceleration (4,7) and safety (4,6) are the best rated variables. ? Autonomy (2,8) and autonomy accuracy (3,8) are the worst rated variables. ? 95% of users would pay more for an EV than for a PFV. ? Younger people have a higher average consumption than older people.
