According to the American Automobile Association (AAA), 96% of owners of electric models do not intend to return to cars with a traditional ICE.

According to the results of the study, many respondents were afraid of acquiring an electric car, and 91% of them mentioned at least one problem before buying. The main concerns were related to the insufficient range on one charge and the small number of charging stations. According to analysts, such concerns remain a serious concern for increasing the volume of sales of electric models.

But from the moment people take a decisive step and acquire electric cars, such problems disappear. Of the surveyed owners of electric vehicles (71% of which had not previously owned electric cars), 96% said that in the future they would again choose cars with an electric power unit.

 According to the results of the study, most motorists drive an electric car more often than before in cars with internal combustion engines. 78% of respondents are still owners of cars using traditional types of fuel, but most of the time (87%) they spend driving an electric car, driving an average of about 60 km per day.

  Many potential buyers worry that the network of gas stations is not sufficiently developed, while after acquiring an electric car, 95% of respondents never brought their own electric car to full charge, and 75% of them lack a household home station.

 Stop buyers and the higher price of an electric car in comparison with simple cars with ICE. But it became known that this difference can be substantially offset by lower operating costs.
