Electric vehicles could reduce CO2 emissions from the transport sector but their limited electric driving range diminishes their utility to users. Two-car households could be better suited for EV adoption since one vehicle could be used for longer trips. However, the number of days requiring adaptation and the differences between the cars in a multi-car household have not been systematically analysed yet. Here, we estimate the probability of daily driving above a fixed threshold for Swedish and German car driving data. We find the vehicles from multi-car-households to require less adaptation and be better suited for EV adoption which we confirm with an economic analysis.

Nyckelord: Battery electric vehicle, driving pattern, mobility
