Analysis of On-Road Electric Vehicle Experience of 62 U.S. Utilities 760074
A program was initiated by the Electric Vehicle Council (EVC) to develop a battery-powered van for use in short-range, multi-stop work missions by electric power companies. One hundred seven of these vehicles were produced in 1974 and sold to 62 power companies throughout the United States and Canada. An on-going study of performance and other parameters has been conducted by EVC, with the cooperation of the users. The program and the resulting vehicle are described as well as the results of the data gathering and evaluation program which has been conducted by the Council.
