Market research and consulting firm Morpace polled more than 250 U.S. owners of hybrid or electric cars for its study. It asked them about their interest in a car that Apple is rumored to be developing for release by 2020. The results showed that 9% are “extremely likely” to buy the Apple car, with 25% “very likely” and 43% “somewhat likely” to purchase it. The rest are “not very likely” to purchase the Apple Car (13%) or “not at all likely” to buy it, Morpace said. The vast majority of consumers expect the design of an Apple electric vehicle to “be better” than other electric vehicles (79%).
