Over 48 Million US Households Could Use A Plug-In Electrified Car –

Presently the number of U.S. households with plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) or battery electric vehicles (BEVs) is less than 200,000, but a nationwide survey has found there is enormous room for growth with today’s electrified cars for today’s daily driving needs.

The survey was conducted by Consumers Union and the Union of Concerned Scientists and found 42 percent of U.S. households could make daily use of a PHEV, including cars like the Chevy Volt, Ford Fusion Energi (pictured), and the like.

According to 2011 U.S. Census data, there were just short of 115 million “households” in the U.S.

The survey, conducted Sept. 26, 2013, also found that 25 percent of American households could meet their needs with a BEV such as the Nissan Leaf, or other sub-100 mile range electric cars.
