  • Our initial research provided the average vehicle miles that were traveled by each major vehicle category for the year 2018.
  • However, the vehicles were not classified for each class type number as only the major category descriptions were indicated in the public sources found.
  • The data found in the AFDC table was also for applicable for all types of vehicles and not specific for fleets.
  • The second set of data we presented was for the average annual miles of travel for commercial fleets. However, the latest data we found for these commercial fleets were from 2015.
  • The categories included also did not show the class type numbers but the general business fleet vehicle type category descriptions.
