5 Surprising Facts From Ford’s Electric Vehicle Study

We know that Tesla owners love their cars and that most electric vehicle drivers have some green reasoning behind their vehicles of choice. To find out what early adopters of pure electric cars and plug-in hybrid EVs (PHEVs) thought about their rides, Ford Motor Company commissioned a study from PlugInsights of over 10,000 EV owners. Some findings (as they appear in Clean Technica) confirm what we suspect about people driving green cars, like the fact most families can only use an all-electric model as a second car. (Some 90% of EV owners also owned a gas vehicle.) Likewise, no one would be surprised to learn that nearly every EV driver was thinking about the environment on some level when they bought their cars.
