Inclusive use of electric vehicles in social housing neighbourhoods

The InclusivEV project, a pan European, Climate KIC funded Pathfinder Project, has investigated the potential for electric vehicles to be used to tackle transport poverty and reduce private transport emissions in outer city communities.

Delivered across four Climate KIC regions – Modena, Italy; Lower Silesia, Poland; Valencia, Spain and Redditch, UK; the project aimed to:

  • Test the financial mechanisms, technical feasibility and community willingness to use electric car share vehicles
  • Develop appropriate business models that delivered low carbon mobility and social inclusion outcomes
  • Address financial and technical barriers to inclusivity
  • Investigate the potential emissions benefits of EV use


Neighbourhood questionnaires were developed to look at travel and transport needs within each community, how those needs are currently being met and whether a car club could offer a viable alternative.

A number of guidance documents have been produced following this research, which outline the findings of this study:
