Consumer Reports Electric Car Survey

Consumer reports recently conducted a survey on the features consumer would want from an electric car.  Out of the 1,752 respondents, over 70% would consider buying an electric car based.  That’s a good percentage especially considering that there are no electric cars available on the market.  There were also many features that would have to be met for many of the people to buy.

  • A range of around 89 miles.
  • Only slightly higher price range than current gas-powered cars.
  • Available charge stations, especially at work

Many of the expectations that the respondents could be met by the Nissan Leaf, an affordable price with a fairly high range.  The hardest part to draw people to buy EV is going to be charge stations.  Until many more charge stations are set up, people will be hesitant to buy.

For the full survey, check out Consumer reports.

  1. It’s nice looking for a electric car and being able to control it from an iphone is a definite bonus.

  2. Its good to see that people would be willing to support the electric car movement. I would too. Nice post!

  3. “A range of around 89 miles.

    I think these are only a few years off. Once there is a momentum for electric cars they will rapidly outperform current internal combustion models.

  4. Most people comment about electric cars as if they already drove it. Hopefully these cars will perform well in the near future. It would be really helpful for the environment.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
