The final electric vehicle report includes nearly 90 pages of all new research and insights from cleantech expert and site director, Zachary Shahan.

The research was conducted using surveys on, and includes responses from more than 2,000 EV drivers. The report explores these responses in detail, highlighting unique findings useful to understanding, serving, and growing the electric vehicle (EV) driver community.

The survey data separated responses by 3 types of electric vehicles (Tesla, non-Tesla pure EV, and PHEV) as well as region (N. America vs Europe). Select charts available in the CleanTechnica EV report folder:

Some of the EV Report highlights include:

  • A large portion (33–45%) of respondents chose electric vehicles primarily for environmental reasons.
  • Tesla Model 3 was revealed to be the electric car that most respondents (23–50%) expected to purchase next. Other choices included the Nissan LEAF, Chevy Bolt, Chevy Volt, BMW i3, Tesla Model S, Tesla Model X, and Tesla Model Y.
  • Respondents expressed great desire for electric vehicles across several car classes, especially the intermediate and SUV/CUV classes
  • The vast majority of respondents expect their next EV model to have approximately 200 or more miles of range, with Tesla drivers expecting much more range from their next EV than other EV drivers.
  • While most EV drivers were satisfied with current charging infrastructure, there was clear potential to improve. Results also showed tremendous demand for cars capable of super-fast charging and Level 3 fast charging
