Research on consumers of electric vehicles appears to offer significant contributions relative to the behaviour factors that stimulate purchase. Although it is one of the topics most endorsed by international organisations, a holistic compendium of the literature is not provided. Therefore, different research directions necessitate a clear systematisation. This study moves in this direction by conducting a bibliometric and thematic analysis of 254 studies related to consumer behaviour in the electric car market. The research reveals the primary co-citation network between international journals and authors, a map of the leading research centres on the topic, and the dimensions covered by scholars. Additionally, the analysis extends the theory of planned behaviour, offering a valuable consumer identikit for practitioners. Based on the results, the study provides multiple research questions helpful to feed the academic debate.

Abstract

Research on consumers of electric vehicles appears to offer significant contributions relative to the behaviour factors that stimulate purchase. Although it is one of the topics most endorsed by international organisations, a holistic compendium of the literature is not provided. Therefore, different research directions necessitate a clear systematisation. This study moves in this direction by conducting a bibliometric and thematic analysis of 254 studies related to consumer behaviour in the electric car market. The research reveals the primary co-citation network between international journals and authors, a map of the leading research centres on the topic, and the dimensions covered by scholars. Additionally, the analysis extends the theory of planned behaviour, offering a valuable consumer identikit for practitioners. Based on the results, the study provides multiple research questions helpful to feed the academic debate.
