Electric vehicles gaining traction
A survey by the Automobile Club (AAA) finds consumer appetite for electric vehicles rivals that for pickups.
The survey found that more than 30 million Americans are likely to buy an electric vehicle for their next car. With rising sales, longer ranges and lower costs, AAA predicts a strong future for electric vehicles.
Even with gas prices that are about 40 percent lower than five years ago, AAA found that consumer interest in electric vehicles and hybrids has not waned.
In fact, the number of Americans interested in an electric vehicle approaches the number planning to purchase a pickup truck, with the survey showing that 15 percent are likely to buy an electric vehicle for their next car.
Millennials are even more accepting of electric vehicles, with nearly one-in-five interested in going electric for their next car. (INT)
