ELECTRIC VEHICLE APPLICATIONS FOR URBAN TRAVELERS: TECHNOLOGY, COST AND THE MARKET
This report examines the viability of the electric vehicle (EV) as a partial solution to Texas' air quality problems. Chapter One describes the air quality, energy security, and global warming issues that have prompted research into alternative fuels such as the EV, and describes the legislative initiatives that have provided funding for this research. Chapter Two examines the current state of EV technology. Chapter Three provides a life-cycle cost analysis of the EV. Chapter Four analyzes the potential market for EVs. This chapter surveys current research on the market for EVs, and then introduces the Center for Transportation Research Interactive Web Survey, designed by the author.
