This paper aims to estimate the potential of electric vehicles (EVs) in Melbourne, Victoria, using the Victorian Integrated Survey of Travel and Activity (VISTA) data. The investigation of whether EVs with different all-electric ranges (AERs) can replace car travel to work and education is the focus of this paper. The results showed that EVs would be able to replace most car travel to work (68.5% to 97.1%) and car travel to education (71.9% to 96.9%), with AERs increasing from 40 km to 100 km, assuming car drivers are willing to use an EV. It is estimated that the average operating cost savings per person would be up to AUD 3.12 and AUD 2.79 each day, regarding travel to work and education, respectively. Considering both travel to work and education, EVs could replace up to 33.8 million kilometres of car travel, consuming around 7.6 GWh and resulting in a reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of about 610 tons each day.
