Abstract (English)

Electric mobility is a very current and fashionable topic at the moment and the hype among all players in the automotive and energy sector, among scientists and activists and in particular among politicians. But which approach is the best for the implementation of electric mobility for a country and which country can serve as a role model for all the others? This thesis attempts to solve these two questions with the help of sound research of available literature. The strategy concerning electric mobility of selected countries is analysed as well as the tools which are used to support the implementation. A comparison of the different strategies shall show how effective the tools are and identify the most successful country in implementing electric mobility. The results indicate that an overall ranking of the countries is rather premature, as all country have only recently started their programs and the projects are more or less up and running for a short period of time. The comparison also shows that none of the countries have neither the perfect solution nor standing too far behind the others. The tools are very similar and even the number of electric vehicles registered are similar compared to the overall number of newly registered vehicles of each country.
