This public opinion survey on Americans' increasing acceptance of electric vehicles provides a fascinating contrast to an article shared on the site recently that examines actual buying behaviors relative to electric vehicles. Whereas the AAA survey finds a five percentage point rise in the number of folks saying their next purchase will be an EV, the earlier OilPrice.com article notes that 79 percent of the tax credits offered by the government for electric vehicle purchases were taken by households making more than $100,000 a year, i.e., not the average American. The basis for the seeming discrepancy may lie in the income levels of survey respondents warming to an EV purchase, but I can't immediately find that kind of breakdown on the survey on AAA's website.
