ELECTRIC VEHICLES IN SWEDEN? A REVIEW OF THE MARKET FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES THAT MAY DEVELOP IN SWEDEN

The object of the investigation is to establish a comprehensive study of the market that may develop for electric vehicles in Sweden. The results should be suitable for: (1) providing help to enable various authorities to reach decisions and to act in connection with financial assistance and other aspects; (2) serving as a guide for planning development of the necessary infrastructure in the context of electric vehicle use; (3) use as an aid for different companies planning to enter the market; (4) serving as a guide to purchasers and (5) serving as a guide for PR and propaganda work. The electric vehicle market that could most easily and most quickly be established is that for distribution vehicles and small vehicles operated by users having sufficiently large organizations to be able themselves to undertake establishment of the necessary support infrastructure. If use is limited to applications in which the vehicle never needs to travel more than 100 km between stops, during which charging can be carried out, the total market for such vehicles in Sweden amounts to about 100000 units.
