Survey - Electric cars are priced too high

The range of an electric car - with the largest percentage agreeing that an ‘acceptable’ range for a pure electric vehicle should be between 100 and 200 miles. More than 40% agreed with that, with 38.5% reckoning between 200 and 300 miles is the sweet spot.

When we asked what is the main thing preventing you from buying an EV, a whopping 74.3% of those polled saying it was down to purchase cost. The next most cited reason was ‘range anxiety’, which 38.1% gave as a reason for holding off on a purchase.

Interestingly, 21.2% agreed that there isn’t enough choice in the electric vehicle market, something that will change fairly dramatically in 2012.
