We just have to accept the fact that transport sector is considered to be one of the major contributors to greenhouse gases emissions and it is soaring. The wide-scale adoption of privately owned low carbon emissions vehicles certainly would provide improvement. The Diffusion of electric vehicles (EVs) is on the forefront of the non-conventional powertrain technology developments. The acceptance of EV is a function of socioeconomic, technical and spatiotemporal factors which potential users and even existing commuters encounter. This article explores space-time analysis of EV potential adopters and early adopters. The social aspect of a selected EV system is the core concept of this piece of work. It discusses the quantification of EV system utilization and testing the level of awareness of an existing EV network. The article presents a methodological approach to planning authorities and policy makers to tackle the major issues of owning an EV hence better understanding of the EV population's supply and demand. The selected baseline study is the inner urban core of metropolitan area of Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom.
