According to a report from automotive market research firm, JD Power, most electric vehicle (EV) drivers vow to never return to combustion engines. Good.
JD Power says that 82% of EV early adopters “definitely will” consider buying another electric vehicle. However, it seems drivers aren’t totally loyal to the brand of their current EV, and overall satisfaction matters when it comes to their next purchase decision.
It seems that drivers are making purchase decisions mostly on range, and availability of chargers. Factors like driving enjoyment, vehicle quality, and cost savings fall lower on their list of priorities.
