This paper presents a preliminary analysis of a national electric mobility policy, named Mobi-E, by addressing the policy-making process, its social impact and knowledge creation. The paper concludes that the Mobi-E fell short of expectations. In fact, behind the innovation rhetoric, the programme left behind an integration of the electric vehicles in an overarching concept of sustainable mobility, the need to change human behaviour, the dynamics of users’ perceptions and knowledge creation. The Mobi-E was also hindered by the financial and economic crisis, a lack of a clear andr decisive financial incentive and the inability to involve key communities in electric mobilitiy.
