More half of Britain's drivers are not planning to buy an electric or hybrid cars for at least 10-15 years.
Great Britain may be among the countries that are among the most active on the field of electric cars. Road to zero has been one of the first documents, predicting total ban of sale of new cars with combustion engines after the year 2040, while providing owners to return the electricity from their cars to grid during the day, thus earing some money etc. However, it looks like, that people are not buying it.
According to Venson Automotive solutions, interest in buying electric cars in near future and electric mobility in general is falling. More than half of respondents said, that they are not going to buy hybrid or battery-powered car in next 10-15 years. Even more, almost every one in five person (19 percent) said, they are not going to buy battery-driven car until there are any other options available. Those results are far worse compared to those from last year, when around 85 percent of respondents said they would consider buying electric or hybrid car.
According to Venson, more should be done for information about ownership of electric cars to reach drivers and potential drivers – conclusion, that has already been made last year, a task fleet managers, car retailers, manufacturers and insurers should take care of. Everything is not bad news however, as reach of electric cars is less and less a concern for buyers, making one think they may after all son become useful for general public.
