Despite the advantages that an electric vehicle offers, many of those in charge are too hesitant and reluctant to include such vehicles into their fleets.
The Fraunhofer IML has therefore launched the »Elmo« project — Electromobile urban commercial transport. The project will help to remove anxieties and support companies in the acquisition of vehicles, planning and vehicle operation. Electric vehicles will increasingly demonstrate a competitive advantage in inner cities. Driving is often either not allowed using conventional vehicles or is highly restricted, with access restrictions due to increase in the coming years.
