In this study, researchers at UC Davis use statistical and econometric methods to analyze the VMT of PEVs as part of household travel demand to understand how much PEVs are being used and the factors that influence their use in a household fleet. Overall, their results show that PEV VMT is correlated to similar factors as conventional vehicle VMT. EV range, household electricity price, and access to level 2 charging from home are additional variables correlated with PEV VMT. The results also show that BEVs and PHEVs appear to be viable as alternatives to conventional vehicles in terms of meeting the travel needs of households.
