This paper proposes a methodology to assess the impact of shared light electric vehicles in urban areas. The proposed approach consists of the comparison between the emissions and costs of travels carried out by traditional cars fueled by gasoline and those performed by shared light electric vehicles in six European cities (Bari, Berlin, Genoa, Malaga, Rome and Trikala) located in four different European countries (Italy, Germany, Spain and Greece). Based on the number of kilometers traveled and a set of conversion factors, the environmental impact and the cost of fuel/electricity are assessed for the two transport modes. Furthermore, the paper proposes a methodology to create a geographical scaled up scenario that allows to evaluate emissions and costs in case of an increased use of shared electric vehicles. The data analyzed revealed that the travel time of L-category electric vehicles might be longer compared to cars. Furthermore, by replacing car trips with L-category electric vehicles, CO 2 emissions could decrease of more than 70% in one year, thus reducing about 6, 082 kg of CO 2 emissions.

Abstract

This paper proposes a methodology to assess the impact of shared light electric vehicles in urban areas. The proposed approach consists of the comparison between the emissions and costs of travels carried out by traditional cars fueled by gasoline and those performed by shared light electric vehicles in six European cities (Bari, Berlin, Genoa, Malaga, Rome and Trikala) located in four different European countries (Italy, Germany, Spain and Greece). Based on the number of kilometers traveled and a set of conversion factors, the environmental impact and the cost of fuel/electricity are assessed for the two transport modes. Furthermore, the paper proposes a methodology to create a geographical scaled up scenario that allows to evaluate emissions and costs in case of an increased use of shared electric vehicles. The data analyzed revealed that the travel time of L-category electric vehicles might be longer compared to cars. Furthermore, by replacing car trips with L-category electric vehicles, CO 2 emissions could decrease of more than 70% in one year, thus reducing about 6, 082 kg of CO 2 emissions.
