Got any data? While there is a certain stereotype of EVs for short commutes, no such pattern is likely to exist for Tesla owners.
Sure! As noted upthread, it’s people who live in rural areas that tend to drive a lot longer distances than people who live in denser, urbanized areas. Not because of the car they drive, but because the really big mileage drivers are (almost by definition) people whose destinations are very far from where they start. If you drive nine miles to the grocery store instead of half a mile (for example), you’re going to just end up using your car more.
So we see that while the national average for miles driven is about 14.5K, a lot of that is racked up by drivers in rural areas. In areas where drivers are more likely to be living in rural areas, you have a much higher annual average mileage than more urbanized areas. So drivers in Mississippi, Montana, and Missouri are averaging around 19,000 miles per year, while the drivers in California, Oregon, and Washington are averaging around 11,000-12,000 miles per year:
I fully expect that pattern would hold for Tesla users. I would expect that Tesla users are far more likely to live in urban areas than rural ones than the population at large. Heck, we know they’re more likely to live in CA or OR or WA than any other states, which are among the lower-mileage states.
