Indicating and managing BEV range issues in two-car households
Paper i proceeding, 2017
We discuss from various perspectives the range limitation; possible indicators, different relaxation options and the actual adaptation in two-car households, using GPS-loggings of both cars simultaneously for 1-3 months in 64 two-car households, and interviews after a BEV trial in 25 of these households. Indicators such as DRA are less useful in two-car households. Instead the flexibility in such households may drastically reduce the range issues. The actual adaptation in households shows that there are numerous reasons to why the options are not fully utilized. Still, none of the test households stated a perceived limitation due to range.
