Those who have tasted electricity no longer want to do without it!

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.
