For almost 9 out of 10 owners of an electric car, it is the main vehicle in the household. Moreover, daily electric mileage is increasing.
Enedis, the electricity distribution network manager, has just published the results of its fourth study on the charging habits of drivers of electrified vehicles. The questions were asked to a sample of 1,000 people, three quarters of whom owned 100% electric models, the rest being plug-in hybrids.
The study confirms the new place of the 100% electric car in homes. It is the main vehicle of the household in 85% of cases, i.e. 10 points more than in 2022 and 20 points more than in 2021. 62% of respondents indicate that they use their vehicle for everyday trips as well. that departures on vacation/weekend, an increase of 11 points in one year. This is also reflected in the average mileage, up with 47 km per day during the week (+5) and 49 on the weekend (+2).
In terms of charging habits, there are no surprises with those who have an individual home: 88% do their main charging at home (score for all respondents). As for residents of collective residences, it is 59%, or 10 points more in one year, proof that collective housing is increasingly better equipped.
Study – Those who resist the electric car are increasingly resistant
Note that for these residents, 31% use public charging stations as a priority and 9% use terminals at their workplace. Overall, 13% of drivers regularly use public terminals. Interesting element of the study: planning is used more and more. 85% of users plan this use, compared to 70% in 2022.
48% of drivers of 100% electric vehicles charge more than once per week. In 73% of cases, recharging is started when the battery state of charge is between 20 and 80%, a good practice. For 42% of respondents, it is between 20 and 39% charge level.
Among drivers of a 100% electric model, 40% charge using a traditional socket, 37% have a reinforced socket and 21% have a terminal or Wallbox. Unsurprisingly, the majority of recharges (two thirds even) are done at night, between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. For 15%, it’s from 5 to 9 p.m. 8% of respondents still say they don’t have a schedule.
27% of electric vehicle users say they manage their charging, with the main motivation being to reduce the electricity bill thanks to peak/off-peak hours, up 14 points in one year.
