Battery electric vehicles (BEV) can locally reduce the environmental impacts of traffic-related pollution. However, penetration rates are far below expectations. Range stress is a frequently mentioned factor describing concerns about getting stranded with a BEV due to a discharged battery. To increase the adoption of BEVs and remove usage barriers, it is essential to better understand user requirements, charging behavior, and the underlying usage motivation, which this paper contributes to. Within a questionnaire study (n = 204), experienced e-vehicle users and drivers of cars with internal combustion engines (ICE) were compared. Results show that ICE and BEV users at different experience levels hardly differ regarding the perceived range stress; BEV users even perceive less stress. Besides, range stress is predicted by user diversity factors.View this paper.
