Abstract

To reduce emissions within urban areas, a shift from conventional vehicles for distribution to electric vehicles is often discussed to reduce local emissions. Studies have shown that this shift would be possible, yet it has not happened. This chapter analyzes why the shift has not happened so far and which further developments are needed to enable such a change. Based on the analysis of various pilot projects carried out in Germany, the developments that are needed to facilitate a swift rollout of e-vehicles for urban distribution are mapped out. The advantages of electric vehicles for urban distribution are described as well as still-existing challenges, user acceptance encountered, and requirements toward innovative distribution concepts beyond the electric vehicle itself. This chapter closes with an outlook on how a wider spread use of e-vehicles for urban distribution can be supported and improved.
