Seasonality Effect on Electric Vehicle Miles Traveled in Electrified Vehicles 2017-01-1146

The efficiency of an electrified powertrain is sensitive to fluctuations in temperature. This impacts the Electric Vehicle Miles Traveled (eVMT), or the miles travelled by Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) using electrical grid power. In this paper, we discuss various methods used to calculate eVMT for PHEVs and propose an alternate method to calculate eVMT with higher accuracy using real world customer data. Real world customer data is obtained through telematics modems on Ford Energi products powered by the “MyFord Mobile” web and phone applications. Customer and season specific data from pure charge depleting and pure charge sustaining trips are used in this method to generate a customer and season specific conversion factor. As a result, this real world data based method helps track the effect of seasonality on eVMT obtained by customers in a combination of all charge depleting and charge sustaining trips.
