News 20111216 cars

  1. 1. News December 16th, 2011 71% of Europeans are interested in electric cars A percentage of 71% of Europeans are interested in electric cars, and of these 57% are considering buying one, according to a survey made bz Cetelem company in 10 European countries. Even if the electric car is considered to be "the best solution for environment protection", almost 1 of 2 (49%) don’t plan to make a financial effort to acquire it. Only 1 European of 3 is ready to pay 10% more for this type of car than its equivalent with heat engine. Cetelem study also shows that interest in this technology is the lowest (54%) in France and that of the French interested, less than 1 of 2 (43%) declare themselves willing to buy such a vehicle. Battery autonomy is a "problematic aspect", according to study which highlights a paradox: although 82% of Europeans daily traveling less than 100 km, 55% of them want to buy an electric car, whose autonomy is less than 250 km. The study was conducted in autumn 2011 on a representative sample of 6,000 people from 10 countries: Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Portugal, United Kingdom, Belgium, Poland, Russia and Turkey.Eng.
