Perspectives on AFVs: State and City Government Fleet Driver Survey

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


This survey collected information from state government and city government fleet drivers who operate light-duty alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs). The survey posed questions about AFV use, fuel use and availability, and performance. Surveys were completed with 468 state government fleet drivers, from 44 of the 50 states. In general, AFVs appear to meet the service application needs of most of thedrivers surveyed, and tend to compare well to similar gasoline vehicles. In fact, more than half of these AFV drivers would recommend an AFV to other drivers. Because they believe operating AFVs is better for the environment, and may help to improve air quality, many of these drivers are willing to use AFVs despite concerns about access to alternative fuels and some lingering vehicle performanceissues.
