According to the J.D. Power Canada Electric Vehicle Consideration (EVC) Study, 66% of Canadians are unlikely to consider electric vehicles (EVs) for their next purchase. The study indicates a decline of 13 percentage points from last year, with only 34% expressing interest in EVs.
Concerns regarding affordability and infrastructure pose significant barriers to EV adoption. Limited driving distance per charge is the top obstacle cited by 63% of respondents, followed by purchase price (59%) and lack of charging station availability (55%).
J.D. Power emphasizes the need for investment and collaboration to address these concerns and achieve EV sales targets.
