This study addresses the question of what factors promote and hinder using electric cars for long-distance driving in Buskerud, Hedmark and Oppland, and how drivers of these electric cars use their vehicles. Further, it focuses in depth on how drivers of electric cars travel to their cabins/vacation homes. We find a clear connection between the battery capacity of electric cars and how long trips they were used for. Most of the long trips longer than 300 kilometers were taken during the vacations, not least the summer vacation. More than 40 % of the respondents in our three-county sample had used their electric car for a journey of at least 300 kilometers the last year. 57 % of the respondents in our largest sample answered that they often or always used their electric car there. This means that electric cars in Norway also have become normal “cabin cars” for those who own an electric car.
