    This paper gives a unique insight in the effectiveness of BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle) incentives in multiple European countries. An area of interest is the chronology of the introduction of different EV incentives, where the relation between EV uptake and incentives has been studied, analyzed and compared. The second focus area is on translating the different incentives into the real benefit for the user/owner in terms of purchase price and Total-Cost-of-Ownership of BEVs compared to conventional powered vehicles. Also the availability of EV models has been identified as a crucial boundary condition in the success of BEV uptake and therefore the expected BEVs which will come to the market have been analyzed
