EVs are un-American, study finds


Biden might be pushing for electrification, but Americans aren’t onboard. Well, that’s what a study by Deloitte has found at least.

Amongst the 1,031 American respondents, nearly two-thirds preferred sticking to conventional gas-guzzlers for their next vehicle purchase.

Some 17% would consider a hybrid electric vehicle (HEV), while only 5% would get a plug-in hybrid (PHEV), or a battery electric vehicle (BEV).

Conversely, consumer interest in BEVs is highest in South Korea (23%), China (17%), and Germany (15%).
