Assesses electric vehicle use among five of the world’s largest ride-hailing companies


This paper quantifies the gap in charging infrastructure to power more than 3 million expected electric vehicles in the U.S. by 2025.


Identifies adoption barriers and summarizes policy approaches for states, cities, and utilities to accelerate the deployment of electric vehicles in ride-hailing fleets.


Assesses the timing of cost-effectively electrifying shared mobility fleets in U.S. cities, with a focus on ride-hailing fleets based on total cost of operation for conventional, hybrid, and electric vehicles in the U.S.


Em uma colaboração entre a Deutsche Gesellschaft für International Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) e o ICCT, esse estudo contextualiza as experiências internacionais em políticas públicas para eletromobilidade em frotas urbanas para o Brasil.


Collaboration between ICCT and Deutsche Gesellschaft für International Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and ICCT reviews public policies for promoting electromobility in urban fleets and how they can be applied Brazil.


Overview of vehicle taxation policy across Europe and how governments might induce consumers to opt for low-emission vehicles




Identifies the 25 cities worldwide with the highest electric vehicle uptake through 2017, and discusses the policies, actions, and infrastructure that have enabled this success


Summarizes existing regulatory practices and develops design principles to adapt vehicle efficiency standards in the 2020–2030 time frame to enable a transition to zero-emission vehicles over the 2030–2050 time frame


Analysis of subnational level policy actions promoting electric vehicle sales in 30 Chinese cities.


An overview of electric vehicle fast-charging installed around the world and what the future might hold going forward, including charging power, grid constraints, installation costs, and business models.


Analysis of electric vehicle market development in the U.S. and the policy and promotion actions that are driving it.


Discusses the potential of zero-emission technologies to reduce emissions from non-road transport, including aviation, maritime, off-road, and rail.


Assesses where electric vehicles and their batteries are manufactured and sold, and the underlying policies in place to sustain growth in the new technology around the world.


Summarizes the state of the electric vehicle market development in California through 2017, quantifying growth across California cities, comparing that growth with other US markets, and putting it in context with broader California policy goals.


Focuses on the new energy passenger vehicle market in China's cities, evaluates the implementation and effectiveness of local incentive policies, and analyzes the potential of future sustainability.


Provides a brief overview of the energy cost per mile for a vehicle using gasoline versus the energy cost per mile using electricity in the United States. 


Reviews recent research regarding greenhouse gas emissions from the manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles. We analyze this research in the overall context of life-cycle emissions of electric cars as compared to conventional internal combustion vehicles in Europe. Finally, we discuss the primary drivers of battery manufacturing emissions and how these emissions could be further mitigated in the future.


Provides an overview of how the NEV mandate will work, summarizes major differences between the interim proposal and the final rule, and evaluates potential impacts.
