One of the greatest environmental challenges worldwide is mobility. In future, increasingly sustainable solutions will be proposed and incentivized and the new technologies, like electric mobility, could (positive) influence mobility performances/habits. The paper aims at critically analyze weaknesses, strengths and application fields of the electric mobility in Italy. Specifically, the electric vehicle today has high production costs, low autonomy and not “zero” environmental impacts deriving from the production, motion and recycling of the vehicle. However, the “local emissions” are null and this pone this technology useful for urban mobility, where high population density often occurs. Furthermore, e-mobility is useful within the new forms of mobility (e.g. MaaS - mobility as a service) where micro mobility, shared mobility, urban bus fleet, freight distribution and an overall higher willingness to pay for users/operators could emphasize the strengths of e-mobility, reducing its weaknesses.
