Empirical recharging behavior of plug-in hybrid vehicles
Paper in proceeding, 2020

In this paper, we investigated the recharging behavior of Chevy Volt (a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) users. The dataset used is from volstats.net and contains data from 9,987 Chevrolet Volt driven with 3.7 million total driving days in the US and Canada, from April 2011 to May 2019. Results show that additional over-day recharging happens on average on 3-8 % of the days and no recharging overnight happens on average less often 3-6 % of the days. Furthermore, users with more than 30,000 annual vehicle kilometers traveled recharge over-day more than three times compared to the rest of the group.
