Survey shows that most car owners believe that the price of electric cars is too high
According to foreign media reports, a recent study by the British Automobile Association (AA) shows that most drivers still believe that the price of electric cars is too high, and many people have never heard of government subsidies for electric cars. The study stated that the government and car companies “still need to work hard to educate and appease drivers” before banning the sale of new gasoline and diesel vehicles in 2030.
The AA surveyed 15,500 drivers, and 81% said that they think the price of electric cars is still “too high”. About two-thirds (63%) of the respondents said that they have 'never heard of' government subsidies for electric vehicles. The subsidy provided by the British government stipulates that electric vehicles with a price of less than 35,000 pounds can enjoy a subsidy of 2,500 pounds. The UK subsidy has recently changed. The government has reduced the subsidy amount per vehicle from 3,000 pounds to 2,500 pounds, and the subsidy threshold has also been reduced from 50,000 pounds to 35,000 pounds, which reduces the number of subsidized vehicles. .
The study also found that consumers have other concerns regarding electric vehicles. First of all, 77% of the interviewees believe that the range of an electric car when it is fully charged is not as good as a fuel car with a full charge. In addition, 59% of consumers believe that the charging time of electric vehicles is too long. Third, 56% of respondents believe that the charging infrastructure in the UK is not reliable enough.
Therefore, 56% of respondents said they are “unwilling” to give up traditional fuel vehicles. 49% of respondents said that they “feel less confident” when driving an electric vehicle compared to gasoline or diesel vehicles of the same level.
Not long ago, the British government announced that the ban on the sale of new gasoline and diesel vehicles will be brought forward to 2030. The country’s previous plan was to implement this ban in 2040, but in order to improve air quality and achieve climate goals, the start of the ban has been moved forward.
AA stated that education will be the key to helping consumers transition to electric vehicles after the ban on the sale of new gasoline and diesel vehicles takes effect. The organization has cooperated with the media and British Transport Minister Rachel Maclean to launch a 'rumor-breaking' campaign.
AA President Edmund King said: 'After more than a century of internal combustion engine vehicles, it is not surprising that car owners are not familiar with electric vehicles. We need to provide for the transition from gasoline power to electric power. Help, we are happy to work with the media and the government to dispel rumors about electric vehicles.'
