EV Owners Speak Out in New Study

EV Owners Speak Out in New Study

As car shoppers and dealers adjust to the electric vehicle phenomenon, they’re looking for answers to questions about the inevitable road to an all-electric future. Commercial charging stations are popping up at banks, parking garages and along highways to meet the increasing number of EVs on the road but despite the progress questions remain.

Some roadblocks, whether the range or the not-so-affordable price tags, have impacted recent consumer demand and seemingly endless headlines.

So, who exactly is the owner already behind the EV wheel?

CDK wants to understand who’s decided to trade in their gas station loyalty card for a home charger and why. In The EV Ownership Lifestyle white paper, we uncover data related to everything from home charging, service and the all-important road trip, among other topics.

Does generation, education level and income impact EV purchasing decisions and trends? How important is word of mouth? Are dealer sales teams helping or hindering the EV transition?

Read on to find out what survey respondents told us. We made sure to talk to owners of the most popular EVs on the road, Tesla, and those who have chosen another EV brand to see if there are differences even among EV owners.
