EVs are still ‘too expensive’ for nearly 81% of Brits: In the UK more than four-in-five drivers believe that Electric Vehicles (EVs) are still too expensive.

The majority of Brits still find switching to an Electric Vehicle a rather pricy move while nearly 63% have never heard of the plug-in grant this is one of the government’s subsidies to help them make a purchase it has been revelead by the AA in a new report.

More than three-quarters believe that a single charge of an EV cannot ensure that it will go as far as a petrol or diesel car on a full tank shows another finding of research.

It is thought that the study of 15,549 drivers also highlights nearly 56% are not willing to ditch their conventionally-powered cars while a similar percentage admit they are concerned over the reliability of the EV charging infrastructure.

With the 2030 ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars almost 49% of people agree  to the ban the report suggests.

The government made an announcement last month for a new scheme that offers grants of up to £2,500 for drivers looking to switch to more affordable models of Vans, EVs and trucks.

“After more than a century of the combustion engine leading the charge it is not surprising that some drivers are only just catching up with all things electric.” said AA President Edmund King

“The automotive future is exciting, and we will probably see more change in the next ten years than we have in the last fifty.”
