The aim of this study is to analyse, under the theoretical foundation of institutional and evolutionary theory, what kind of conditions would be necessary to enable market and develop competencies for electrical vehicles development in Brazil, and the assessment of possible future scenarios.Literature, secondary data documents as well as research on patent basis and interviews with relevant actors of the sector were performed, trying to map and to prospect what kind of competencies are being developed in the country. Results showed that are some small movements made towards the development of electrical mobility in the country, mainly outside traditional automotive sector, but they lack strong coordination and the support from public policies. A possible strategy, with the development of specific products, such as small urban vehicles or applications such as buses or utility vehicles, could be one way to start the development path to a local stronger industry in the near future.
