Hybrid Vehicles Take the Lead as Consumer Interest in EVs Declines, AAA Survey Reveals



According to a recent AAA survey, there's been a decrease in American consumers looking to purchase electric vehicles, with a noticeable pivot towards hybrid vehicles instead.

A mere 18% of American adults polled indicated they might or probably would purchase a new or pre-owned electric vehicle, a decrease from the previous year's 23%. Meanwhile, a significant 63% of those surveyed expressed they were "improbable or highly improbable" to choose an electric vehicle as their next car. Nonetheless, 31% of those questioned did express a likelihood or high likelihood of purchasing a hybrid vehicle.

Upcoming 2024 Model from

According to a survey, the primary factors deterring exciting electric vehicle prospects are their high prices, the scarcity of accessible charging stations, and the worry of running out of power. The survey, which included 1,152 participants primarily through online interviews with the remainder reached via telephone, was carried out from April 4th to April 8th, 2024. AAA states that the demographic of the survey mirrors about 97% of households across the United States.

The study revealed that 30% of American adults cannot set up an electric vehicle (EV) charging station at their residence. Furthermore, those lacking home charging capabilities face a scarcity of alternatives. According to a 2022 report by Bloomberg New Energy Finance, the United States trails behind other nations in the ratio of public charging stations to registered electric vehicles. However, initiatives such as Voltpost's streetside charging stations could alleviate concerns for apartment dwellers reliant on on-street parking, easing their transition to EV usage.

General Motors and Pilot Company's electric vehicle charging infrastructure

According to the findings, AAA anticipates a potential short-term limit on how widely battery electric vehicles are embraced by consumers, attributing this to factors such as price, the ease of finding charging stations, and worries about how far the vehicles can travel on a single charge, as per the auto club's statement.

In recent developments, AAA has expanded its services to accommodate electric vehicles by offering on-the-go charging solutions and assistance in planning trips for EV drivers. Historical data from AAA's surveys indicate a favorable opinion towards electric vehicles, noting that firsthand experience tends to alleviate the fear of limited driving range. However, it seems there's a significant gap between the pioneering consumers and the current broad spectrum of buyers, the latter requiring much more persuasion.
