I keep hearing this statement every time range is brought up. Every car company cites this "fact" when dismissing the need for a long range EV, that a Volt meets the avg commuter's need for all electric commuting.
Has anyone stopped to think where exactly this figure came from? Has anyone ever participated in a survey about their traveling habits?
I suspect they just took 15,000 miles per year and divided it by 365 days.
