How are driving patterns adjusted to the use of a battery electric vehicle in two-car households?
Paper i proceeding, 2016
We have supplied two-car households with a Volkswagen e-Golf to replace one of their conventional cars for 3-4 months and measured their driving with GPS equipment. The measurements contain data of the driving of both household cars, before, and after they obtained an EV. Our analysis focus on the uptake of driving for the EV, as well as the driving adaptation the households made when acquiring the EV. Results show a small uptake of driving for the EV and a large heterogeneity in adaptation, where some household increase the EV driving compared to the removed car, and some decrease it.
