How To Get People Into EVs

Why that third option is important comes back to what was discussed earlier regarding the fun of driving EVs and their better drive quality (which is quieter and smoother than in a gasoline-powered car). Other responses from EV owner/lessees reinforce this point. When asked to rank agreement with the statement, “People who drive my EV tend to love it,” after removing the respondents who said this was not applicable to them (presumably because no one else had driven their EVs), 72.5% strongly agreed, 21.8% moderately agreed, 5% were not sure, and 0.7% moderately disagreed. There’s potential respondent bias in these responses, but I think the fact that less than 1% disagreed with such a strong statement is very telling.
