Analysis of the Decision to Lease an Electric Vehicle and the Impact of Incentives on the Electric Vehicle Lease Market

  • Principal Investigator Scott Hardman, Ph.D.
  • University of California, Davis
Using a choice model, the project will identify behavioral differences between those who purchase versus lease plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs), discuss how the characteristics of a vehicle technology influence the decision, and will investigate the impact of incentives on the decision to lease a PEV.

Data
The market for plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) that primarily include battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) has been rapidly growing in California for the past few years. Given the targets for PEV penetration in the state, it is important to have a better understanding of the pattern of technology diffusion and the factors that are driving the process.

Plug-in Electric Vehicle Diffusion in California: Role of Exposure to New Technology at Home and Work

Research Report
The market for plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) that primarily include battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) has been rapidly growing in California for the past few years. Given the targets for PEV penetration in the state, it is important to have a better understanding of the pattern of technology diffusion and the factors that are driving the process. Using spatial analysis and Poisson count models, the researchers identify the importance of a neighborhood effect (at home locations) and a workplace effect (at commute destinations) in supporting the diffusion of PEV technology in California.
