Hat die Elektromobilität eine Zukunft?
The paper focuses on whether e-mobility has a feasible chance of market penetration and social acceptance from an economic point of view. This includes a critical assessment of the ecological benefits as well as the other advantages of e-mobility. Furthermore, the likelihood of consumers switching from conventional vehicles to e-vehicles is considered by taking into account the opportunity costs related to such a substitution. Finally, additional macro-economic considerations show that factors such as the development of the battery market as well as increasing oil prices determine the prospective competitiveness of e-vehicles and subsequent structural changes within the mobility sector significantly.
