Résumé : This article presents a microeconometric analysis of household car use in France. To characterize car use dependence, the myopic and rational addiction models are estimated using panel data drawn from the French -Car Fleet- survey. Significantly, the assumption of rational addiction to car use cannot be rejected, and is even supported by a plausible estimate of the intertemporal rate of substitution (17%). Furthermore, the rational model yields realistic estimates of the fuel cost- and income-elasticities of household car use, respectively 0.23 and + 0.10 for the short run, and 0.37 and + 0.16 for the long run.
