Abstract: To accelerate the transformation to a sustainable mobility system, we propose a causal loop diagram to better understand the dynamic behavior of policy interventions and trends. As such, we identified five core agents through a set of expert interviews. By utilizing concept maps and causal loop diagrams we further integrated subcomponents of each agent into a holistic and connected model, enabling the qualitative assessment of feedback loops. We use the example of battery electric vehicles and evaluate policy measures and trends on their potential impact on adoption. In addition, we set the causal loop diagram, trends and niche-innovations into the context of socio-economic system transformation to grasp the full potential in transforming the prevailing private, fossil fuel based, car regime providing recommendations to support this transformation. The causal loop diagram could serve as a basis for in-depth quantitative studies and deepened assessment of feedback loops in transforming mobility systems.
