Electrification of vehicle miles travelled within the household context
Paper in proceeding, 2019

In this paper, we investigated Plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) within the household context and analyzed how household factors impact utility factor (UF) and electric vehicle miles travelled. We used a dataset with one-year logger data on all actively used cars in 71 households owning a PEV in California. Our results indicate that for the whole household, a PHEV with a range of 36 miles can electrify almost the same share of miles as a BEV with 80 miles range. Furthermore, a higher frequency of long-distance trips lowers the UF of a PHEV and owning a conventional car with higher fuel economy lowers the UF of the household.
