Ford Motor Company is reporting that data from Ford plug-in hybrid drivers shows that consumers are embracing electric-only driving faster than expected.

Data collected from the MyFord Mobile app in the plug-in Fusion and C-Max Energi models and the Focus Electric shows customers drive more than 8,400 electric-only miles every hour, and about 203,000 electric-only miles per day. (Ford has sold about 10,400 of these vehicles to date.)

SPXcharger1Driving habits of electric-only vehicle owners also show that the number of all-electric trips increases nearly 50 percent after the first six months of ownership as consumers become more familiar with their vehicle’s range and the location of charging stations. On average, drivers are charging their vehicles at least six times.
