DOE: plug-in automobiles in US displaced 323M gallons of gasoline in 2018; ~zero.25%

In 2018, plug-in light-duty automobiles on the street displaced 323 million gallons of gasoline—about one quarter of a p.c of all gasoline utilized in america, based on the US Division of Vitality (DOE). Gasoline displacement from plug-in automobiles is about 42% greater than it was in 2017 and about twice as a lot because it was in 2016. The gasoline displacement from EV versus PHEV was cut up virtually evenly in 2012 and 2013 however EV accounted for two-thirds of the gasoline displacement by 2018. Supply: DOE
