This paper presents a methodology to analyse electric vehicle (EV) monitoring data to identify use patterns. The methodology is applied to the monitored data of a fleet of electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV). The methodology introduces a link of the travel behaviour and characterisation with the range of the electric vehicle. To identify use patterns a number of indicators are defined: reset points, extra range potential, daily distance driven, average distance between reset points and maximum distance between two reset points. These indicators are calculated on monitored data of EVs, and the first results and observations are presented.
