WPI Economics Electric Cars survey

Survey of GB adults on behalf of WPI Economics on electric cars

• While half (52%) of GB adults are likely to buy a car in the next two years, just 15% say that they are likely to buy an electric / hybrid car.

• While 58% are interested in reducing the impact their driving has on the environment, only 36% say that the Government’s existing subsidy scheme would make them more likely to buy a hybrid or fully-electric car.
