Electric vehicles are an attractive solution towards low-emission vehicles enabling the transport sector to significantly reduce emissions and achieving the EU target of decreasing the sectors CO2 emission by 30%. Over the last years electric vehicles have gained increased interest in European and national policies and also public awareness increased significantly.

The European and global EV market is expected to grow dynamically over the coming years. In 2012 alone fourteen new EV car types are planned to be launched on the market by major car manufacturing companies.

 
According to the ITRE report "Challenges for a European market for electric vehicles" (2010) most stakeholders assume a realistic market share for new, electrically chargeable vehicles in the range of 3 to 10% by 2020 to 2025. Based on today’s new vehicle sales of app. 15 million vehicles in the EU-27 in 2009, this would result in new electrically chargeable vehicle registrations of between 450,000 and 1.5 million units by 2020 to 2025.

The market penetration will depend also on the extent to which the new market requirements are fulfilled as well as on the way customers accept electric mobility.

 
The availability of high quality maintenance services plays a significant role in the market uptake of EVs. EV technologies require new skills of maintenance professionals. ELEVTRA aims at the development of a comprehensive, international and standardised European training programme and professional profile of electric engineering technicians dealing with the maintenance and repair of electric vehicles and charging stations.
