Electric Vehicles - Low Emissions Malta

The added element of innovation of the DemoEV project is that during the demonstration the electric vehicles

themselves are being tested on their actual environmental efficiency.  This will be done through the continuous monitoring on the technical aspects of the vehicles themselves, while factoring in the uses for which they are being applied either for private use or commercial use.  This will be further complemented by a detailed environmental and economic efficiency study on the ways of recharging electric vehicles and low emissions in Malta.

Throughout the duration of the pilot project, the cars will be logo-wrapped in highly-visible colours with a slogan indicating that they are fully electric as to stand out and demonstrate to the volunteers and the public at large, the energy efficiency of electric vehicles when compared to internal combustion engines.  This would create a positive feeling about the ownership of such vehicles, and thus entice the purchase of electric vehicles in the long term. 

Ultimately, this pilot project aims to serve both as a launching pad for electric vehicles locally while promoting a switch from internal combustion engines to electric vehicles and as a yardstick to measure the adaptability of the vehicles to a Mediterranean climate.  Electric vehicles do in fact reduce dependency on petroleum, may mitigate global warming by alleviating the greenhouse effect and are notoriously quieter than internal combustion vehicles.  More importantly, they do not produce noxious fumes.
