Identifying potential demand for radical innovations is a major challenge for business planning. Nonetheless, decision making is still based on forecasts. Thus, better forecasting models lead to better decisions. This work suggests a new agent-based simulation model that merges concepts of diffusion models and discrete choice models. Thereby, a glimpse into market timing, market potential and the underlying individual preferences is possible. The model is applied in the study of Germany?s goal of 1,000,000 electric cars sold until 2020.
