Survey: Lack of charging facilities and high cost, nearly half of Americans are not considering buying electric vehicles

According to CNBC, a new poll shows that nearly half of American adults are not considering buying an electric car as their next car, mainly because of the lack of charging facilities and high cost. .

According to the survey, 47 percent of U.S. adults said they were unlikely to buy an electric vehicle as their next vehicle. Only 19% of respondents said they were “very” or “extremely” likely to buy an electric car, and 22% said they were likely to buy an electric car. Among them, nearly 80% of the respondents believe that the lack of charging infrastructure is the main reason for not choosing electric vehicles.

In addition, another reason why American car owners reject electric vehicles is that they are expensive. According to data from Kelley Blue Book, an American auto research company, the average price of a new electric car in the United States is more than $58,000 (about 399,100 yuan), while the average price of a motor vehicle is less than $46,000. To reduce the cost of buying electric vehicles, 49% of Americans support the federal government providing tax credits, cash rebates or other financial incentives for clean energy. “While people are interested in buying electric vehicles, the high upfront cost of owning one and concerns about insufficient charging stations in the U.S. are holding back more,” Benz said in a statement. People drive electric vehicles, and alleviating these concerns requires more policy support from the government.

The CNBC website reported that the survey results come at a time when the Biden administration is vigorously promoting electric vehicle sales and embracing clean energy. According to the US “Washington Post” report, the Biden administration will soon announce strict restrictions on vehicle exhaust pollution, aiming to ensure that 67% of new cars sold on the market by 2032 are electric vehicles. However, only 35 percent of Americans support stricter vehicle emissions rules, and 27 percent support all new cars sold from 2035 onwards must be pure electric or plug-in hybrid, the poll found. In addition, the Biden administration issued regulations in February this year requiring that electric vehicle charging piles funded by the federal government must be produced in the United States, and plans to install 500,000 electric vehicle charging piles across the United States in the next few years.
