Learning from Norwegian Battery Electric and Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle users: Results from a survey of vehicle owners

Lærdommer fra brukere av elbiler og ladbare hybridbiler – Resultater fra en spørreundersøkelse blant bileiere

A survey of vehicle owners identified who the owners of Battery Electric vehicles (BEV) and Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) vehicles are, how the vehicles are used, why they are bought and how the technology is rated, compared to owners of Internal Combustion Engine Vehicles. BEV owners are younger with more children and vehicles, a higher share of workers and longer work trips, than other groups. BEVs and PHEVs does not compete for the same customers due to the incentive structure. BEVs are in total and on weekdays used more, but less on vacation. The vehicles are charged at home, partly at work, rarely elsewhere. BEV owners manage everyday driving, 83% never dropped and only 6% aborted trips. Better infrastructure can halve these problems. PHEVs are driven 55% of total km in E-mode, 63% on work trips. Cost and environment motivate buyers, and incentives such as free toll roads available to BEV owners are important.
