Abstract

Electric Vehicles (EVs) represent an effective response to the pressing environmental and economic problems linked to the mobility in the urban areas. However, limited drive range and high purchase costs limit strongly their popularity. The deployment of EVs in the car sharing (CS) fleets is an effective strategy to overcome these initial drawbacks. In order to make it competitive with the traditional private mobility forms an accurate planning is required. With the aim of obtaining a tool able to highlight the impact of the EVs adoption on the performances of a CS service and evaluate different operative conditions, this paper develops a discrete event simulation model of a generic electric-CS system. In order to assess the validity of the approach, a real case study is analyzed and simulated
