More Americans now say their next car could be electric
Even before recent gasoline price increases, Americans were giving electric cars a second look, according to a recent study from AAA.
But what’s driving the increased openness to consider an electric ride is not as much operating costs than it is the increased range as EVs evolve. Here’s how USA Today reported it:
One big reason that Americans are becoming more likely to consider buying an electric car: concerns about running out of electricity are diminishing.
Some 58% said it was a concern that would prevent them from buying an electric car, marking a decline from 68% in 2017.
“Range anxiety is less of a concern than it has been in the past,” said Greg Brannon, director of automotive engineering for AAA, the organization once known as the American Automobile Association.
