Carried out by: California’s Center for Sustainable Energy

California’s Center for Sustainable Energy asked 8,756 plug-in car owners why they had bought their EV and found that the reasons vary depending on the model. Whereas Nissan Leaf buyers were more concerned about the environment, Chevy Volt owners were most attracted by the Volt’s promise of fuel savings and the possibility to use HOV lanes.
