This paper analyzes driving and refueling/charging data using high-resolution GPS for plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) in households. This will help in understanding the energy efficiency and emission reduction associated with PEV usage. Consumer perceptions of PEVs’ ability to meet driving needs as opposed to the ability of internal combustion engine vehicles may contribute to the low market share in the overall light-duty vehicle market. The results of this study can be used to help policymakers develop policies that encourage PEV adoption.
