ROLE OF ELECTRIC VEHICLES IN MULTI-MODAL URBAN TRANSPORT SYSTEM

Electric vehicles are able to satisfy some of the urban transport needs. The ability of battery and guide-way-sourced vehicles are discussed and compared with internal combustion engines for a variety of vehicle types and journey characteristics. The factors which are significant are performance, energy source and efficiency of conversion and pollution. Existing urban transport policies will change the characteristics of city travel and the demand for vehicles. These factors are outlined, together with new government incentives which may be introduced if electric vehicles are shown to offer advantages. /TRRL/
