With support from the Department of Energy (DOE), CALSTART and its partners collect and analyze data from a diverse set of electric vehicles (EVs) across different applications, geographies, terrains, and climatic conditions. Data from medium- and heavy-duty (MHD) EVs – battery-electric school buses, transit buses, trucks, and off-road equipment – from both public and private fleets as well as Clean Cities Coalitions is of particular interest. With this data, we are creating a public database, visualization tools, and more to support the anticipated growth of electrified transportation nationally.

MHD EV Deployment Data
This interactive online tool allows policymakers, fleet owners, industry leaders, and researchers to explore the extensive MHD EV data that has been collected across various U.S. regions. Users can filter, analyze, and develop learnings from real-world duty cycles, vehicle performance, and vehicle attributes.
The dashboard includes several tabs for easy navigation:
- EV data collection overview: timeline, geographic coverage, and vehicle count by platforms, vocations, sectors, and battery types
- EV model attributes: battery range, battery capacity, maximum charge rate, and more
- EV duty cycles: daily distance, daily run time, and daily average speed
- EV performance: vehicle efficiency performance by segments and correlation with external factors, including ambient temperature
This tool is a work in progress and will be continuously updated with new data and visualizations. Additional sections for the charging data collected are under development. For more information or feedback, please contact us at DOEdatacollection@calstart.org.
