According to foreign media reports, a new study shows that by 2030, the number of electric vehicles on the roads in the UK will exceed that of diesel vehicles. However, this survey from the British media AA did not ask for the opinions of experts. Instead, it sent a questionnaire to more than 12,000 consumers to understand their views on the British car market in 2030.

Research shows that British car owners predict that by 2030, the number of electric vehicles will account for 19% of the total number of vehicles in the UK, while diesel vehicles will account for less than 17%. If this happens, it will mean that consumers' attitudes towards electric vehicles will undergo a major change. Currently on the roads in the UK, electric vehicles account for less than 1%, while diesel vehicles account for 39%.


As diesel models are criticized by the media, environmentalists and consumers, research shows that their market share is expected to decline. As of the end of December 2019, there were nearly 13 million diesel-powered vehicles on the roads in the UK. However, the respondents of this survey predict that the number of diesel vehicles will drop to about 5.5 million by the beginning of 2030.


At the same time, electric vehicles will be accepted by more and more people, and its number is expected to increase from around 90,000 at the end of December 2019 to around 6.5 million in January 2030. Moreover, this survey predicts that it is not only pure electric vehicles that will be welcomed by consumers in the future. By 2030, the proportion of plug-in hybrid vehicles will reach about 12%, and the market share of 'regenerative' or 'self-charging' hybrid vehicles such as Toyota Prius will also reach 14%.


Other types of power vehicles will also have an impact on the UK market. The survey predicts that the proportion of hydrogen-powered vehicles will reach 5%, and the proportion of 'other fuel' vehicles will be close to 3%. Despite this, gasoline-powered vehicles will remain the first choice of consumers. The survey predicts that by 2030, gasoline-powered vehicles will account for approximately 30%.


AA President Edmund King said: 'In the next 9 years, electric vehicles may provide us with a strong driving force. Obviously, car owners want to have electric vehicles, which will play an important role in the future. Everything at present Factors are beneficial to electric vehicles. The range of a single charge is constantly increasing, the price of purchase and lease is becoming more and more affordable, more models and styles are entering the market, and companies are also investing in charging stations. /p>
