EV Buyers in the US Unlikely to Revert to Gasoline Vehicles2 min read
A recent study, showing that the majority of EV buyers in the US do not want to revert to gasoline vehicles, is another piece of evidence emphasizing the popularity of electric vehicles.
The EV revolution is underway, with pretty much every automaker either already having an EV model in its lineup or preparing to launch one soon. They are also taking a number of steps to inform consumers about EVs and the benefits of buying one.
General Motors, for instance, has created an online tool that answers questions about EVs. Ford, meanwhile, is operating various public chargers in collaboration with providers like ChargePoint and Electrify America. This is an attempt to nullify the dearth of public chargers across the US.
The study mentioned above showed that almost 66% of all EV buyers in the US in Q2 of 2022, purchased an electric car as their next vehicle – a considerable year-on-year jump from 2021.
This shows that people are starting to understand how EVs benefit our environment. Since electric vehicles do not have tailpipes, they do not produce any exhaust gases. This can significantly reduce air pollution, especially in congested cities.
While leaving behind a more habitable planet for our kids is enough of a reason to go electric, the benefits of EVs go beyond the environment. It is also a more economic way to commute: on average, an EV costs under £1.30 to cover 100 miles, compared to £11.05 for petroleum cars.
The bottom line is that EV technology has arrived, and it is here to stay. The world is waking up to the benefits of electric vehicles and an increasing number of people are likely to choose EVs over their traditional counterparts in the coming years.
