61% of Germans Would Consider Using Electric Car for Commuting


Renault ZOE

According to a survey of 2,000 Germans, done by E.ON most (61%) of the respondents would be willing to use electric cars for commuting.
61% is a high result, especially without incentives available on the market.
As we all know, electric cars are ideally suited for the average commute, but are they as well suited for recreation (i.e. trips, adventures, Sunday morning joy rides)?
Less than 55% would consider electric cars for recreation.
Is this indicating an upcoming increase of sales? To date, there are more than 12,000 electric-powered cars and 85,000 hybrid cars on the roads in Germany
