Consumer Survey Shows Change on EVs

By Staff Writer April 23, 2023

A survey conducted by MINI USA reveals American consumers’ changing perspectives regarding electric vehicles, highlighting shifting sentiments over the last four years when MINI first carried out the same survey. 

Tracking both changes from existing questions and adding a few new questions in the mix this year, the survey indicates that almost half of American consumers plan to purchase an electric vehicle in the next five years. With a new question probing the barriers that consumers are facing in the EV purchase journey, factors such as price (44%) and lack of reliable public charging stations (18%) are the main lingering deterrents.

Commissioned by Engine’s CARAVAN, the survey further explores consumers’ growing familiarity and embrasure of EV infrastructure and ownership as it relates to their daily travel needs.

“MINI is joined by several other automakers in the commitment to offer more electric vehicles each year and making them more accessible to consumers than ever before,” said Andrew Cutler, head of communications, MINI USA. “It remains a responsibility of the industry to ensure that everyday drivers are equipped with the understanding and incentive to join the revolution that is vehicle electrification.”
