Electric Car Drivers & Potential Drivers — Chime In!

As I announced last week, we are now collecting data for our 2019 electric car driver report. Yet again, building on the work of previous years and always looking to evolve, we’re aiming to significantly improve the data, analysis, and report in 2019.

As I announced last week, we are now collecting data for our 2019 electric car driver report. Yet again, building on the work of previous years and always looking to evolve, we’re aiming to significantly improve the data, analysis, and report in 2019.

This time around, we plan to collect a significant number of surveys from 4 groups (Tesla drivers, non-Tesla pure-electric drivers, plug-in hybrid drivers, and potential future EV drivers) in 5 regions (North America, the Netherlands, Norway, Germany, France, the rest of Europe). In the U.S., we will also conduct a random sample survey to compare the results of these surveys with an adequate representation of the general population of the United States.

We’re also planning to perform much more nuanced and sophisticated analyses of the data this year. The result will be a report like no one has ever seen. This is possible in part due to sponsorships from CATL and Volta.

If you haven’t already done so, we’d love it if you would go ahead and quickly complete the survey (or surveys) that match your profile:

USA or Canada

For Tesla drivers.

For plug-in hybrid drivers.

For non-Tesla 100% electric drivers.

For people who don’t yet drive an EV.

France

For Tesla drivers.

For plug-in hybrid drivers.

For non-Tesla 100% electric drivers.

For people who don’t yet drive an EV.

Germany

For Tesla drivers.

For plug-in hybrid drivers.

For non-Tesla 100% electric drivers.

For people who don’t yet drive an EV.

Netherlands

For Tesla drivers.

For plug-in hybrid drivers.

For non-Tesla 100% electric drivers.

For people who don’t yet drive an EV.

Norway

For Tesla drivers.

For plug-in hybrid drivers.

For non-Tesla 100% electric drivers.

For people who don’t yet drive an EV.

UK & European countries not listed above

For Tesla drivers.

For plug-in hybrid drivers.

For non-Tesla 100% electric drivers.

For people who don’t yet drive an EV.

If you complete the survey and want to receive the report for free, send us an email and we’ll put you on the list.

As a bit of a taster, be sure to check out our 2018 electric car driver report — or the CleanTechnica article archives highlighting different sections of the report. Additionally, below are some of the core questions we’re aiming to answer in this new study:

  • What electric vehicle models do current EV drivers and potential EV drivers plan to buy next? How does that vary by country/region and current EV model?
  • What vehicle features do EV drivers and potential EV drivers care about the most? How does that vary by country/region and current EV model?
  • Why do people buy EVs, and how does that compare to the results of previous years? How does that vary by country/region and current EV model? (Okay, you get the point on our interest in variation by region and type of EV, so I won’t keep repeating this.)
  • What vehicle classes are people most interested in?
  • What vehicles people are replacing for their EVs?
  • Buy or lease?
  • How much range do people expect in their next (or first) EV?
  • What are people’s expectations and requirements regarding EV batteries (beyond simply range)?
  • Where do EV drivers charge?
  • Would EV drivers shop more in grocery stores and retail locations providing free EV charging?
  • Do EVs make people drive more efficiently or conserve energy at home?
  • Fast charging vs. superfast charging — who cares?
  • How good is current EV charging infrastructure?
  • What portion of EV drivers have home charging, and how has that changed over time?
  • What portion of EV drivers have home solar, and how has that changed over time?
  • And more …

One more time: Help us out and complete a survey or two if you haven’t yet!
