The Geography of EV Charging
Understanding how regional climates impact charging and driving behavior.
In May 2020, Geotab released a groundbreaking data-driven study called EV Growing Pains. This was one of the largest studies of EV charging load ever conducted and included an analysis of data from over 3,900 electric vehicles from across North America. This report will utilize the same data set and further examine the real-world data collected in order to showcase the role temperature and seasonal climate plays in influencing charging and driving behavior.
“What utilities need to be aware of is that temperature- related impacts to range fundamentally change the charging and driving behavior of the EV owner.”
