Last year, AAA reported that 20-percent of American drivers said they’d consider buying an electric car as their next vehicle. This year, even more U.S. residents are warming up to EVs, as a recent survey confirms.
The Union of Concerned Scientists and Consumer Reports performed the survey. They evaluated and compiled the responses of 1,659 Americans, to get their results. As Clean Technica relates, 31 percent of participants said they would consider an EV for their next vehicle purchase. In addition, 5 percent stated that they’ve decided to buy or lease an EV as their next ride, while 27 percent said they would consider purchasing an EV in the future.
