The spread of electromobility is still far behind the objectives and expectations of politics and society. Up to now, the relatively high vehicle costs, politically sanctioned energy prices, the limited vehicle ranges and the inconvenient charging process represent the major barriers. At the same time, several drivers exist, such as the superior efficiency, emission-free driving, conservation of fossil resources and the impressive driving enjoyment. This article summarizes the drivers and barriers of the electromobility from an ecological, economic and social perspective. Finally, the challenges for the technology development and the production technology are derived.
