Project: Research

Description

The objective of Task 32 is to promote a broader commercialization, acceptance, and a further development of small electric vehicles (SEVs) by collecting and sharing pre-competitive information, exchanging framing conditions, best practices and ideas, how to further develop the market conditions and mobility concepts. In this sense, the objectives in short are twofold:

(1) Increased safety, comfort and usability at lower costs for SEVs due to technological progress

(2) Better market perspectives for SEVs due to a change in surrounding conditions like e.g. regulations, transport policies and mobility concepts.

The Task addresses the SEVs concepts, status of technologies and needs for research as well as the conditions to put them on the market. Apart from the vehicles themselves, the Task addresses also the potential future role of SEVs in advanced mobility concepts, including e.g. their role in concepts of sharing, increased automation, and new public transport.
