Wannabe EV Owner/Lessee Survey!!
Our survey of electric car owners and lessees went very well, with 800 people completing the survey! A couple of years ago, I think we wouldn’t have gotten half that number. But now is time for the really big one — a survey of wannabe electric car owners/lessees! (If you don’t yet own or lease an electric car but think you will at some point in the future, I want to get your opinions on the matters in this survey.)
Several people helped with the design of this survey, so a big thanks to those early viewers and their feedback. Please complete the survey and share it with friends and family members. The more responses, the better!
As always, be sure to click “Done” when you complete the survey.
You can complete the survey via this link or in the embedded form below.
For those eager for more information about this survey, the plan is to both write short articles about some of the highlights and also create a full report on these results, the results of two previous surveys (the EV owner/lessee one and the campground one), and the broader electric vehicle story. The report will be free thanks to sponsorship from EV-related partners.
As many of you know very well, I’m convinced that electric vehicles are the future of transport. Actually, I’m convinced EVs on the market are already better options for hundreds of millions of people than similarly priced gasmobiles. But awareness is super low, experience is minuscule, and breaking down sociopsychological barriers that come from outdated, habitual concepts is anything but easy. So, the question is, what will work best?
Also, the electric offerings very certainly do need to improve. When it comes to the next wave of electric car buyers and lessees, what are they (we) looking for? What will get us to dive in? What will make us drop a few dozen grand or at least a few grand on a fast metal and plastic box? How can an automaker win us over when dozens of electric options are on the market? For those in the EV industry but not working on the production of electric cars, what can be done to speed up the electric revolution?
These are the broader questions we’re looking to answer, and will try our best to answer in the upcoming report… with a great deal of help from you and other survey respondents.
