90% of Devon residents “plan to buy EV”

More than 90% of Devon residents are aiming to buy an electric vehicle according to a survey from the county council.

TransportandEnergy.com reports the survey of more than 1700 residents discovered a third said they wanted to replace their ICE vehicle within five years – and only 6% said they would ‘never’ buy an EV.

The survey was part of the Deletti project, led by Devon County Council and supported by the European Regional Development Fund. It asked about driving habits, where people store their vehicle, mileage, what they drive, engine size and general attitudes towards EVs.

Findings included 50% stating it was important the car charged quickly and another 60% saying charging an EV should be cheaper than refuelling a car. Also eight of ten said their top priority would be to charge their car near or at their home.
