Abstract

Electric vehicles (EVs) are one of the near-term practical solutions invehicle technology, which can reduce emissions leading to the greenhouse effect and dependence on fossil fuels that are correlated with conventional vehiclesconventional vehicles (CVs). Several interferences are yet to be overcome for widespread adoption of EVs, despite many benefits provided to the consumers.

This research aims to identify potential environmental and socio-technical barriers to purchase of EVs and it determines if governmental policies and awareness of individuals affect the customer decisions purchasing an EV. This research tries to convey valuable insights into perceptions and preferences of technology enthusiasts, individuals who are greatly connected to latest technology developments, and those who are well equipped to sort out the numerous differences between CVs and EVs.
