**LeasePlan, together with leading global research firm Ipsos, released the ‘EVs & Sustainbility’ edition of its annual Mobility Insights Report, which shows record-high support for electric vehicles (EVs), with more respondents than ever before considering making the switch to electric.

However, the report found that, despite growing interest in EVs, respondents are increasingly worried about poor charging infrastructure, citing lack of charging stations as one the biggest roadblocks stopping them from making the switch.**

The key findings of the EVs & Sustainbiltiy edition of the Mobility Insights Report, which surveyed over 5,000 drivers in 22 countries, are:

  • There is a clear surge in positive attitudes towards electric driving, with a record 65% of respondents indicating that they view zero-emission electric driving favorably. Nearly half (44%) of all surveyed said that their opinion towards electric driving has favorably improved over the past three years
  • The vast majority (61%) of respondents intending to get a new car in the next five years say they will consider an electric vehicle, indiciating driver acceptance of EVs has now reached a tipping point
  • Drivers are increasingly clear that being green doesn’t have to cost more than driving a diesel or petrol vehicle, with 46% of respondents saying EVs not only contribute to fighting climate change through lower CO2 emissions, but also agreeing that they have an overall lower running cost (47%)
  • On a less positive note, 51% of those planning to buy a car in the next 5 years cited insufficient charging infrastructure (either at home, work or on public highways) as preventing them from choosing an EV, while ‘range anxiety’, was the roadblock stopping another 34% from going electric
