This paper describes how sales of electric vehicles (EVs) have been less successful than expected, usually because of reduced battery range and technical limitations. Nevertheless, a niche market has been developing in France for many years, seemingly unaffected by these limitations, according to the authors. They examine the routine mobility practices using an EV in this market to explain this phenomenon.
