Electric-mobility may be a key component in a successful transition toward deep greenhouse-house reductions. However, widespread uptake and use of plug-in electric vehicles will involve meaningful shifts in social and technical systems. This report considers the potential market for plug-in electric vehicles in Canada’s passenger vehicle sector and investigates how consumer interests may guide such shifts. Data were collected from samples of “Pioneer” plug-in electric vehicle owners and “Mainstream”
conventional vehicle owners from 2013 to 2015.
