Abstract:
This thesis uses a Social Construction of Technology (SCOT) approach to build a multidirectional model of the development of the electric car. This analysis produces a constructivist theory for the development of the electric car today. There are many environmental themes present throughout this thesis, and a critical analysis of the environmental impacts of electric cars. The product of this analysis is the identification of all the perceived issues, relative to individual social groups, with the electric car, and provides solutions to those problems. The challenge of this paper, and of the SCOT framework, is to relate the solutions provided to the relevant social groups. This paper ends by discussing how those solutions relate to social groups and actors, and then broadens to a wider discussion about the electric car as a part of the solution to global climate change.
