Ready to plug in? What consumers really think about electric cars

Bigger and bolder commitments are being made to an automotive future powered by electric vehicles (EVs).

Volvo, for example, recently announced plans to produce only electric, hybrid and mild hybrid cars by 2019, and sell a million EVs by 2025. That announcement was made with the Swedish automaker yet to launch a fully electric vehicle.

Tesla, meanwhile, has put on record the ambitious goal to make its cars run for a million miles with drive units that “basically never wear out.”

With EVs posing such a dramatic change to motoring in the years to come, we asked consumers for their opinions on electric cars, and about their plans for buying their next vehicle. The results of the survey are contained in the infographic below.
