Simulating the take up of electric vehicles based on the financial benefit of the vehicle

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookConference contribution

Abstract

The introduction of electric vehicles and their many variants is an important step in the effort to reduce greenhouse emissions and dependence on fossil fuels. Nevertheless, the take up rate of electric vehicles is still low. Although many people agree that electric vehicles provide an environmental benefit, the main purchasing factor for vehicles is based significantly on financial benefits and practicality. This study aims to estimate the number of electric vehicles that could replace conventional vehicles based only on financial benefit and the distribution of households that financially benefit from taking up an electric vehicle.
