Why An Electric Car Saves Fleet Operators $16,000 In Lifetime Cost
By Matthew Klippenstein – June 16, 2014 – The average car spends about 95 percent of a 24-hour day parked. For the 5 percent that they’re driven, they actually spend one-third of the time idling–at red lights, stuck behind leisurely left-turners, or even while the driver waits for the vehicle to warm up (or cool down) before getting in. In other words, private automobiles spend only 3 percent of their time actually mobile.
