Studying electric-vehicle public-charging choices is an important aspect of accelerating electric-vehicle adoption. Understanding which factors would entice existing and potential users to charge their electric vehicles at public locations would provide important evidence for policy-makers, vehicle manufacturers and charging providers. The academic and grey literature has now matured to a point where a critical synthesis of the current state of knowledge is necessary. To fulfil this, this review provides a synthesis and critical discussion of the most up-to-date evidence on public charging choices based on which a conceptual framework to match choices and their determinants is devised. Research gaps and further empirical evidence required in this area, as these emerged from this review, include better understanding of the temporal patterns of public charging, users’ preferences for different types of charging locations, payment models (monthly subscription, pay as you go) and payment methods.
