Medium- and Heavy-Duty Electric Vehicle Deployment—Data Collection

Data on medium- and heavy-duty (MD and HD) battery-electric vehicles are lacking and yet very much needed as the trend towards transportation electrification is accelerating. This project directly addresses this problem by collecting, consolidating, organizing, and making available to DOE national laboratory researchers a large set of data from a wide range of electric MD and HD vehicles operating under different conditions. The usage data and datasets encompass approximately 200 diverse vehicle sizes, types, settings, and operating conditions. The primary focus is data collection and analysis for electric MD and HD vehicles (transit buses, school buses, trucks, and off-road equipment). This project is an effort to leverage any recently collected data while strategically planning for and collecting new data from upcoming electric vehicle deployment projects across the nation. The data and the extensive research facilitated by its consolidation help inform the industry, legislators/regulators, researchers, planners, and end-users about future deployments, energy demands, and user trends.
