Electric vehicles (EVs) are currently seen as an important means to make transport more sustainable; however, so far, only a few EVs are actually on the roads. This paper tries to identify likely early private users of EVs based on a narrative review of results from earlier studies by the authors. Two usage sce-narios are analyzed: (1) the traditional model of car use where the EV is bought or leased by the household whose members drive the vehicle ("individual us-age"), and (2) concepts where EVs are used as part of shared fleets ("collective usage"). Findings indicate that, for both scenarios, likely early users are highly educated middle-aged men. Those who live with their family in rural or subur-ban regions seem to be more interested in owning an EV; for those living in ur-ban areas, carsharing might be an attractive alternative. Other likely user groups are also discussed in the paper
