Perhaps the most fascinating new question in this year's Electric Car Drivers: Demands, Desires & Dreams reports concerned the electric vehicles people considered but didn’t buy. We asked EV owners which other electric vehicle models they thought about buying before deciding on the one they purchased or leased.

March 15th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

Probably the most interesting question we asked in these surveys was one of the simplest: “What do you think your next EV model will be?” It is particularly interesting because it gives us a strong sense of where the market is headed, and combined with answers to some other questions (see the next chapter), it also tells us a bit about which features and specs matter the most to EV buyers

Since 2016, CleanTechnica has published annual reports on electric vehicle drivers, which electric vehicles (EVs) they drive, what they expect to buy or lease next, their charging experiences, what features they want in a vehicle, and more.

May 27th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

One of the more interesting things for me in our annual EV surveys is how much people want various special features — auto lane change, all-wheel drive, superfast charging, fast charging, etc. The extra fun in our new 93-page electric car driver report is that we got these responses segmented by type of EV and region.
