    Electric Vehicle (EV) infrastructure is relatively new in many countries. Due to the recency of an EV infrastructure, it is important to carry out a series of testing programs. Furthermore, authenticity for collection of data is necessary for testing programs in order to provide accurate results. At the same time, user privacy should not cease since tracing one's daily logistic movements or behaviour from the EV testing programs means breaching one's privacy. In this paper, we propose a novel solution PEVTS for enabling both data authenticity and user privacy concurrently. Our proposed system provides great flexibility to the authority to choose any arbitrary set of authenticated users for testing in every time period. At the same time, it provides anonymity for all participating users. Yet it can trace any vehicle within a time period for statistical purpose. We give a detailed description of our system. We also implement the prototype of our system to show its practicality.
