AAA recently released a study named Electric Vehicle Ownership: Cost, Attitudes and Behaviors in which they surveyed electric vehicle (EV) owners. The study revealed that the majority of owners no longer had any skepticism towards owning an EV after purchasing one. This resulted in 96% of the owners saying they would buy or lease an EV again the next time they were looking for a new vehicle. Our favorite findings from the study are below and please check out AAA’s complete fact sheet here.
A few other interesting numbers are:
