European Electric Vehicle Fleet Demonstration with ZEBRA Batteries 1999-01-1156
In April 1996 the European Project „Electric Vehicle Fleet Demonstration with advanced Batteries” has been started with financial support of the European Commission. Sixteen electric vehicles equipped with ZEBRA batteries have been built up as prototypes and are now operating in five major European cities. Today, after 1½ years of fleet operation the fleet of 10 OPEL Astra Impuls has covered a mileage of more than 275.000 km and the project can be evaluated sufficiently exact to extrapolate the project results. Energy consumption structures, mobility structures (daily trip length) and user acceptance have been analyzed and will be discussed in detail.
