User study: Electric vehicles in a business context

Company fleets offer the possibility to increase user acceptance of electric vehicles. But is it reasonable to use electric vehicles in a business context? The user study conducted by Fraunhofer IAO for the Shared E-Fleet project examines this question.

For the survey, 145 potential users of electric vehicles at the locations of Münchner Technologiezentrum (Munich Technology Centre), STEP Stuttgarter Engineering Park and the municipal administration of the city of Magdeburg have been questioned. The study shows that the users view electric mobility in a fundamentally positive light. What is more, the study also reveals great potentials for the use of electric vehicles in a business environment, since the majority of business trips take place within a radius of less than 100 kilometers.
