MetadataShow full item record
This paper offers systematic and innovative information to the usage of electrical vehicles (EVs) in Spain between 2007 and 2012. Five different EV categories are analyzed. The data is broken down by provinces and regions. Likewise, the study analyzes the evolution of EV use as well as the percentage of EVs in each category with regards to the total number of vehicles in a given category, with the percentage of EVs per 10,000 habitants. In addition to this, the paper provides detailed information about the legislation promoting the use of EVs, both in the European Union (EU) and in Spain. The article includes an assessment of the promotional measured used for EVs for their growth rate. Finally, the authors provide a number of recommendations about the type of efforts to be undertaken by the authorities of Spain and the EU to increase the use of EVs. In Spain, the development of the electrical vehicle stock has increased annually for each of the categories. Nevertheless, the relationship with the total number of vehicles, EVs have failed to reach 1% in any of the categories. The ratio number of EVs per 10,000 inhabitants has increased in each of the provinces, with more than twenty provinces (44%) having a ratio that surpassed 1 EV/10,000 inhabitants in 2012. © 2018 Elsevier Ltd
