TOPICS / Electric Vehicles


At the ICCT, we work to understand and describe what policies and incentives are proving to be effective—and how—during these early stages of the global electric vehicle market. We analyze trends in electric-vehicle technologies and in vehicle markets. We evaluate factors like tax incentives, non-fiscal promotional policies, and infrastructure to know how prospective electric vehicle buyers perceive and react to these new technologies. We compare the different policy approaches being pursued in countries and cities around the world to better understand the emerging best practices to accelerate the transition to an electrified global vehicle fleet.
