Almost never plugged in. So far less real GHG reduction.GRA wrote: ↑Wed Mar 31, 2021 6:03 pmUh huh, except that PHEVs can offer significant GHG reductions with much smaller packs, e g. Niro/Kona/Prius Prime. FTM, plenty of people could have significantly reduced their GHGs from the PiP's 11 mile AER, if it was easier to keep the ICE from kicking in; my 1-way commute is 4.2 miles, so if I were to drive it like most people instead of riding my bike, the PiP's AER would be alI I'd need.
37% of PHEV global miles are electric miles. More in the USA, with low fuel taxes than in Europe with high fuel taxes.
So high fuel taxes are not the answer to getting PHEVs used as mostly EVs.
