Right, the answer for an individual use case and vehicle is, it depends on the individual use case and vehicle. Just curious if this has been estimated across the entire US fleet? I think even 5% for acceleration alone is high.

One way to roughly calculate this on an individual basis would be to keep track of how much electricity a hybrid or EV regens over time.
