A new survey conducted in England confirms the attachment of electric car owners to this form of mobility. Less than 1% of them would like to return to combustion engine vehicles.
The survey was carried out among British motorists using the Zap-Map app. 2,000 electric car drivers responded to the survey, which confirmed that the vast majority will not switch to gasoline or diesel vehicles.
” The results clearly show the fundamental shift in consumer attitudes towards environmentally friendly cars ” explain the investigators. “In the survey conducted in November 2020 with more than 2,000 motorists, 91% said ‘no thank you’ to the possibility of replacing their electrified car with a gasoline or diesel vehicle. Less than 1% of respondents want to return to the use of fossil fuels, while 9% are still undecided “.
Remarkable fact: 100% electric cars obtained a better satisfaction rate than plug-in hybrids.
For 73% of those surveyed, their current car is their first electric vehicle, and 52% of them have bought it in the past year. With a satisfaction rate of 92%, all-electric car drivers are significantly more satisfied with their purchase than those who have opted for a plug-in hybrid, which are only 84% to say they are fully satisfied.
Among the 100% electric models, the Volkswagen ID.3 obtained the maximum satisfaction rate of 100%. It is followed by the Tesla Model 3 and the Kia e-Niro which both collected a fine score of 96%.
” Our latest survey clearly demonstrates the strong and lasting impact of adopting a clean ’automobile. Evidence of satisfaction from those who have opted for electromobility is increasingly convincing with each of our surveys, even in a year as troubled as 2020 Said Melanie Shufflebotham, co-founder of Zap-Map, commenting on the survey results.
In the UK as in most other countries, 2020 has been a great year for electrified vehicles, with sales figures rising as the car market as a whole has suffered a downturn. As a result, the market share of electric vehicles has more than tripled across the Channel, reaching 9.7% of all new car sales.
