#LetsGoElectric

ELVITEN electric bicycles, scooters, tricycles and quadricycles are taking to the streets in six cities around Europe.

You have to listen very carefully to hear an electric light vehicle. But keep your eyes open and you’ll see one of ours.

WHAT IS AN EL-V?

On two, three or four wheels, electric light vehicles are quiet, cheaper to run and produce zero CO2 emissions.

 

How they can make
your life better

EL-Vs help you get through traffic and are easier to park. Use them for journeys where public transport doesn’t reach your destination. Take the kids to school, do your shopping, or just head off to your local park – when more people use EL-Vs, there’ll be more room for green spaces and the air will be that much cleaner.

Help us with collecting opinions on the EL-V experience

The ELVITEN project is conducting an online survey (anonymously) on the real experience of Electric Light Vehicles (EL-V) users and non EL-V users. The survey consists of four sets of questionnaires about people’s real experience with EL-Vs covering two-wheeler, three-wheeler, four-wheeler and non EL-V users. The ELVITEN survey also has a few questions about charging points.

Under Work Package 5, as part of a task led by the University of Leeds, ELVITEN partners are collecting responses on real EL-V driver conditions, including interactions with other traffic participants. Based on the questionnaires’ responses, the user’s experiences will be analysed in detail, especially as regards:

  • any situations occurred and resulted from interactions among EL-V users with other traffic participants (e.g. vulnerable road users, heavy vehicles, level of interactions, involved participants, user’s reaction);
  • any matters regarded interactions between EL-V users and road infrastructures, environment conditions (e.g. road signs, road markings, visibility conditions);
  • the satisfactory level of availability of private and public charge points and technologies;
  • any technical problems encountered as regards EL-V;
  • the level of comfort of EL-V users and any matters experienced with the control of an vehicle.

The ELVITEN survey findings will be documented per category of EL-V as well as per user age, gender and a cluster.

The survey is available in five languages: English, German, Greek, Italian and Spanish.

The deadline for submission has been extended until 30 April 2020 and should not take more than 10-15 minutes to complete.

Your contribution to the survey is valuable for implementation of ELVITEN project.

A full report from H2020RTR19 conference is available

On 4-5 December 2019, ELVITEN project participated in “Results from Road Transport Research in H2020 projects” H2020RTR20 European conference in Brussels organised by ERTRAC (European Road Transport Advisory Council), EGVIA (European Green Vehicles Initiative Association) and the European Commission (represented by DG RTD, DG MOVE and INEA).

The conference gave a preview of the results of the research performed under the Horizon 2020 funded projects in the field of road transport. The conference covered various topics e.g. urban mobility, road safety, automated road transport, green vehicles, and logistics under the Horizon 2020 programme.

The ELVITEN project was featured in the conference’s session on: “New mobility paradigm, new vehicles: how could the mobility of tomorrow look like? A presentation given by Dr. Evangelia Portouli from ICCS (project coordinator), provided participants with information on numerous L-category vehicles in sharing systems in 6 cities across Europe as part of the transport system. She also underlined that the project has been successful to obtain a large amount of feedback from users in the form of an online survey and has been assessing the potential of including such vehicles in multi-modal journeys.

A full report providing detailed information on the H2020RTR19 conference has been published on 20 March 2020. The report provides a complete overview of the content presented during the 2-day event. It also elaborates on the projects achievements, how they confront the difficulties and resolve them, and it presents what are the next steps in projects implementation. The report also highlights other H2020 funded projects like STARS (Shared mobility opporTunities And challenges foR European citieS), MoTiV (Mobility and Time Value), WEEVIL (Ultralight and ultrasafe adaptable 3-wheeler) and STEVE (Smart-Taylored L-category Electric Vehicle demonstration in hEtherogeneous urban use-cases) which follow the same V-Model, as ELVITEN, for vehicle development and demonstration in urban areas.

In general, the report expresses that all of the projects are moving in the right direction by learning to ask the right questions and confirm that they are connected to the appropriate ecosystems for future mobility. It also cited Charles Darwin: “It is not the strongest or most intelligent that survive, but those that can best adapt” stating it rightly fits to all the projects.

Do you want to know what ELVITEN project is working on? And how it is accomplished?

Then check out our YouTube video to understand what we do along with our partners. The ELVITEN project is present in six European cities: Bari, Berlin, Genoa, Malaga, Rome and Trikala, and demonstrates there how light electric vehicles (EL-V) can be used in urban areas and be integrated into the existing transport network.
