Study: EV driver average mileage higher than ICE motorists

Published:  03 June, 2021

EV drivers are travelling 370 miles further per year than internal combustion engine (ICE) motorists according to a new research from Nissan, ahead of World Environment Day on Saturday (5 June).

The carmaker’s study showed that EV drivers are totting up an average of 8,800 miles annually. Meanwhile, motorists using ICE reach an average of 8,450 miles per year.

70% of existing EV drivers noted their experience of range has been better than they expected.
The research also found that 69% of EV drivers questioned said they are happy with the current charging infrastructure, with 23% saying the biggest EV myth is that the current infrastructure cannot cope. When the 30% of ICE drivers who are unlikely to consider a fully electric vehicle were asked, 58% said their biggest concern on EVs is range.

Commenting on the findings, Arnaud Charpentier, Region Vice President, Product Strategy and Pricing, Nissan AMIEO said: “This research reiterates that electric driving is not only a smart option beneficial to the environment but also a fun, exciting and convenient choice for the owners. It is no surprise that people now drive EV further than ICE cars. We are confident that with more electric vehicles on the road dispelling myths, range anxiety will soon be in the past.”
