Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Going Electric: How Cities can Prepare for Electric Vehicles

This project explores how electric vehicles will alter urban mobility and changes in infrastructure.

Even though replacing fossil-fuel-powered vehicles with identical electric ones is usually thought to be the main form of vehicle electrification, the global EV market is dominated by small, light and short-range vehicles, like e-scooters and cargo bikes, specially designed for urban areas. This project studies what this trend means for cities’ passenger and freight transport planning. It also determines what these vehicles will cost cities, citizens and operators. Finally, this project develops scenarios to help stakeholders better understand their needs when preparing for a future with more electric vehicles. 

The project report is slated for publication in February 2023.
