A short summary including a link to a copy of the review follows.

Morton commends this edited volume as an introductory text for those wanting to understand more about electric vehicles (EVs).  His review outlines how the book provides a breadth of understanding, with the first part considering how EVs may contribute to the existing mobility needs of society, the second part evaluating the challenges which EVs pose to a range of stakeholders and the third part comprising a critical assessment of the practical experiences relating to the EV trials in Germany.

The review complements the role of the book in providing access to knowledge to English speakers, as much of the research presented stems from German universities.  However, the reviewer also highlights that knowledge gets lost in translation on a few occasions.

A copy of the review is available here with the kind permission of Elsevier. It  is also available via Science Direct.
