This paper offers a critical overview of the full spectrum of household discrete choice-based automobile demand models. Data collection methods, modeling approaches, and the relevant explanatory factors are the primary themes of this review. Furthermore, we examine research methods for assessing the demand for alternative fueled vehicles with an emphasis on stated choices analysis. Overall, this review puts into perspective theoretical assumptions and empirical results for the development of modeling systems capable of assessing market shares and benefits of policy interventions regarding both conventional and alternative fueled vehicle technologies.
