Abstract The withdrawal of the purchase subsidy and the spread of Covid-19 have had a significant effect on Chinese consumers' purchase intentions regarding electric vehicles (EVs). Therefore, it is worthwhile analyzing the factors influencing EV purchase decisions from the consumer's perspective. We use a consumer-oriented model to analyze the total cost of ownership over 5- and 10-year holding periods in China for internal combustion engine vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs…

Total cost of ownership of electric vehicles compared to conventional vehicles: A probabilistic analysis and projection across market segments
The findings indicate that the comparative cost efficiency of EV increases with the consumer's driving distance and is higher for small than for large vehicles, and policy measures that educate consumers about the TCO of different vehicle types based on their individual preferences are discussed.
China’s electric vehicle subsidy scheme: Rationale and impacts
To promote the market penetration of electric vehicles (EV), China launched the Electric Vehicle Subsidy Scheme (EVSS) in Jan 2009, followed by an update in Sep 2013, which we named phase I and phase
Total cost of ownership and market share for hybrid and electric vehicles in the UK, US and Japan
Abstract New powertrain technologies, such as Hybrid Electric Vehicles, have a price premium which can often be offset by lower running costs. Total Cost of Ownership combines these purchase and
