What impacts the electrified miles travelled (eVMT) of Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs) within the household context?
Conference contribution, 2018

Electrified vehicle miles travelled (eVMT) and the utility factor (UF) -described as the share of eVMT within total vehicle miles travelled- are two of the most common metrics in analyzing the performance of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and understanding to what degree they provide ‘emission-free’ travel. The number of studies in the literature that uses empirical data to assess eVMT and UF are limited. Some of those studies look into how some factors such as all electric range (AER) impact eVMT and UF; however, factors within the household context are usually neglected. In this study, we used an empirical data set to estimate eVMT and UF on the household level and apart from the range of PEV, we looked into how factors within the household context such as households size, number of drivers, total household VMT, commute distance, share of PEV-usage among household drivers, impact eVMT and UF.
