Nordlund, Annika; Jansson, Johan LU and Westin, Kerstin (2018) In Transportation Research, Part A: Policy and Practice 117(November). p.205-213
Abstract
In this study a model was applied on consumer acceptance of commonly implemented EV focused measures. The model is based on a norm-activation process as defined in the Value-Belief-Norm theory and the Norm-Activation Model. The study was based on a questionnaire survey study on three groups of car owners; conventional fossil fuel vehicle owners (CV, n = 312, owners of vehicles run on alternative fuels except electricity (AFVnon-electric, n = 386), and owners of some form of electric vehicle (EV, n = 494). The results indicate that activating a personal normative reasoning in people can have a positive influence on the level of acceptance of EV aimed policy measures. It is important that policy makers develop policies that are perceived as... (More)

It is important that policy makers develop policies that are perceived as just and effective, which as a consequence are then more acceptable to citizens. (Less)
