EV sales have witnessed strong growth in the last few years to reach 753,000 units in new registrations in 2016 (compared to just 48,000 in 2011). Although EVs possess several social, operational and environment benefits, the study reviews existing literature to highlight certain attitudinal and sociotechnical barriers including low range and less matured charging infrastructure along with others.
