    The transition to electric mobility is in full swing. Governments, at local, national and transnational levels are aiming to support and encourage this transition by applying a plethora of incentives, subsidies and other policy measures. This work reviews the current state-of-the-art and practice of these incentives through an extensive analysis of reported policy applications and effectiveness. 17 publications were reviewed that report an evaluation of in total 53 incentives. As a next step, these incentives are linked to a first version of a relational model of factors influencing EV uptake. Combining incentives and EV uptake factors into one single overview supports policy makers and other stakeholders in assessing the applicability, desirability and effectiveness of potential future incentives and increases understanding of the electric mobility eco-system.
