As part of its effort to address Puerto Rico's heavy dependence on fossil fuels for transportation, the Government of Puerto Rico plans to introduce electric vehicles on the island. This project, sponsored by the Energy Affairs Administration, studied various factors that would influence electric vehicle introduction to Puerto Rico. Our findings revealed that electric vehicles are viable in Puerto Rico; they are also supported by the general public. Prior to the deployment of electric vehicles, however, more charging stations must be installed. Additionally, financial incentives and educational campaigns are necessary to create an electric vehicle market in Puerto Rico.
