In the coming years, major car manufacturers will mass produce electric vehicles. Despite a quantum leap in EV technologies however, there are many unsolved problems. Short ranges and insufficient charging infrastructures are often named as central issues here. In order to avoid problems and deficiencies it is necessary to simulate the usage of EVs, though contemporary approaches do not fully consider the particular characteristics and limitations. In this work, we emphasise these additional requirements and describe the development of a corresponding simulation framework which is able to predict futur(e-)traffic.
