However, in these studies attitudes and purchase willingness were measured in respondents not having knowledge or experience of EV's. To avoid this, a field study in which families use EV's during 3 months is set up. Attitudes and purchase willingness are measured before, during, and after EV use and in-depth interviews are made to capture the adaptation process to the EV's. Furthermore, vehicle trips and recharging times are logged. The results from the interviews show that the respondents experienced the EV's as more useful for shopping and visiting trips, as safer, and maintenance as less difficult after than before. The results from the logging show that the EV's were used in 64.1 % of the total number of trips, in 48.7 % of the total distance, equally often by males and females, and most often for shopping and work trips.
