Electromobility is on the advance in urban mobility concepts. In a common project between Adam Opel AG, Vattenfall Europe Innovation GmbH and the Department of Motor Vehicles at Berlin Technical University, 300 electric vehicles with longer ranges are being studied in everyday operation.
The Opel Ampera has an electric range of 40-80 km and can use the on-board combustion engine as a generator for longer distances. This largest planned European fleet trial of electric vehicles thus provides valuable information on the use of electrified vehicles and the use of supply infrastructure under real conditions.
The project focuses on few geographical aspects and puts the analysis of user behaviour in the context of economic and ecological framework conditions. For the Berlin/Potsdam, Rhine-Main, Rhine-Ruhr, Hamburg and Stuttgart model regions, direct development possibilities will be derived from the specifications for vehicle use (routes, energy conversion).
