USA: The EV Project Q4 2011

Data on Electric Car Driving Patterns from the EV Project

By Brad Berman · April 06, 2012

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act provided funds for the EV Project, a joint project between the Idaho National Laboratory, ECOtality, Nissan, General Motors, and more than 40 other city, regional and state governments, and electric utilities. In February of this year, the Advanced Vehicle Testing Activity published the project’s success thus far.

By the end of last year, the EV Project had installed 3,785 electric vehicle charging stations and enrolled 3,629 LEAFs and 218 Volts in the program. These electric vehicles had accumulated 13.7 million miles in travel over the course of the year, driving between 27 and 65 miles on average between charging events.

It’s going to take some time to analyze the full report. But I’ve pulled a number of slides from the report so we can begin to examine the results of driving and charging patterns among owners of the Nissan LEAF and Chevy Volt.
