The IEA publication, entitled EV City Casebook: A Look at the Global Electric Vehicle Movement, makes an assessment of the various global EV projects to assist vehicle manufacturers, utilities, mayors, urban planners and any of the others that are stakeholders in locating best EV practices for their own cities. A variety of locations are examined, from the dense populations of Hamburg and New York to the smaller areas such as Goto Islands off of Nagaski. There are the open vast metropolis areas like Los Angeles or the five-city combination of BrabandStad. Each area has a different approach with many options.
EVs are being used and examined for taxis, mass transit, short-term car rentals and to create data traffic systems. While cities many often lead by example, using and buying EVs as municipal fleets can also lead to infrastructure changes such as special road lanes. Some of the programs involve subsidized vehicle purchases that are direct, while there are others that are incentive-based. Many of the programs utilize recharging via financial assistance, individual stations or they may have both.
