CMU study explores optimizing PHEV design and allocation to minimize life cycle cost, petroleum consumption, and GHG emissions

Green Car Congress

The study by Dr. Jeremy Michalek and colleagues found that while a fleet with plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) with universal high electric range (i.e., 87 miles all electric) minimizes petroleum consumption, minimum lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are achieved with a mix of low-range (~25 miles) and mid-range (40-50 miles) PHEVs. At a 10% discount rate, Li-ion pack cost must fall below $410/kWh for PHEVs to be part of the least-cost solution.
