Barisa, Liga, 2022. Determinants of electric vehicle adoption in Sweden. First cycle, G2E. Uppsala: SLU, Dept. of Economics



This thesis investigates the determinants of electric vehicle (EV) adoption in Sweden. A linear-logarithmic regression model is estimated on annual data from 2011 to 2020. In addition to a national level analysis, the thesis carried out separate analysis for the regions of Norrland, Götaland and Svealand to find any regional differences. The results show that the average distance travelled is significant in every regression alongside fuel taxes. This finding has two policy implications: Expanding EV charging infrastructure to entice non EV drivers to adoption and increasing fuel taxes to reduce the relative operating costs of EVs.
