Publication Date Nov 2009
Media Count 25p
Personal Author D. L. Greene Z. Lin
Abstract This paper describes a consumer choice model for projecting U.S. demand for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) in competition among 13 light-duty vehicle technologies over the period 2005-2050. New car buyers are disaggregated by region, residential area, attitude toward technology risk, vehicle usage intensity, home parking and work recharging. The nested multinomial logit (NMNL) model of vehicle choice incorporates daily vehicle usage distributions, refueling and recharging availability, technology learning by doing, and diversity of choice among makes and models.
