18 Dec DP 1/2020 – Deploying light electric vehicles (EL-Vs) in transportation infrastructures

The new STA Discussion Paper, authored by Mr. Francisco Aletta and Mrs. Friederike Kühl of Etelätär Innovation, offers a review of light electric vehicle (EL-V) usage in urban infrastructures following pilots in 6 European cities under the framework of the ELVITEN project.

EL-Vs are special electric vehicles which use more powerful engines than “regular” e-bikes or e-scooters while weighing less than larger electric cars or trucks. Although they have proven to be a convenient addition in urban transportation infrastructures in the United States and several different Asian countries, their potential on the European market had not yet been explored in detail.
