Electric vehicles are driven 29 percent less than the average internal combustion car in the US

Tesla Model X

The average owner of a three-year-old electric car in America drives about 14,579 km per year, according to a new iSeeCars study. That’s 29 percent less than the average owner of an internal combustion vehicle drives in a year.

Even the owners of the most driven three-year-old electric vehicles on the road today drive less than the 20,532 km that the average owner of a three-year-old internal combustion vehicle drives.

The top four electric vehicles by average annual distance driven are Tesla models, with its large SUV, the Model X, topping the list at 16,702 kilometers per year, according to Jutarnji.hr.

“Tesla drivers are the closest to the driving behavior of traditional car owners,” said Karl Brauer, executive analyst at iSeeCars. “Without Tesla, the average number of kilometers for electric vehicle drivers would drop from 14,579 km to 10,813 km”.

There are likely a number of reasons for this difference, including the relatively small number of EV owners, their second vehicle position, and the newness of the technology. However, iSeeCars points out that range probably has a big impact on these results. For starters, the number of kilometers a vehicle travels in a year is strongly related to how far it can go per charge.

“Looking at 3-year-old electric cars, we see that EV owners are willing to drive an additional 40 km per year for every kilometer of range their EV offers,” said Brauer. reached the annual driving distance of 20,532 km that we see in traditional internal combustion powered drivers”.
