Abstract

It is well proven that the research on electric vehicles (EV) offers an outstanding contribution in identifying the variables that influence consumers’ behaviour in support of sustainable mobility. Therefore, the study aims to investigate the main factors that can significantly influence consumers’ purchasing choices. The analysis intends to examine and enrich what academics have already observed based on the observations within practitioners’ publications. This study moves in this direction by conducting a content analysis through Leximancer of 3254 articles connected to consumers’ behaviour in the market of electric vehicles. The comparison between academics and professionals better identifies positive and negative aspects that affect consumers’ willingness to buy electric vehicles, as well as detecting common factors, practical or theoretical gaps, and valuable evidence for future developments. Based on the findings, the study contributes to the international debate on EVs by providing new perspectives to support public policy and academic studies with possible implications for practitioners’ activities.
