Last year, I asked a similar question in a much longer survey, “How much more would you be attracted to a fully electric car model if you had access to the Tesla Supercharger network or a comparable super-fast charging network (if one ever gets built) for a one-time cost oc $2,000?” (Chart below.)
I was curious if opinions might have changed considerably and if answers would be different asked in a different, and am just very curious in this topic.
Interestingly, responses were approximately the same as before.
In the new poll, 68% of respondents said a broad super-fast charging network is “very important,” compared to 65% of said they were significantly or MUCH more attracted to an EV that can use Tesla’s Supercharger network.
Another 22% said that it was somewhat important, compared to 24% who said they were “slightly more attracted” to an EV that can use Tesla’s Supercharger network.
Together, that 90% vs 89%.
Needless to say, our readers (informed EV enthusiasts) see broad, super-fast charging networks as quite important for the EV market and their own EV desires. If you haven’t yet checked out my recent detailed look at the state of super-fast charging, I encourage you to do so, and here’s a broader piece on EV charging.
