Nissan asked 7,000 motorists from nine European countries to question their driving behaviour. Owners of a fuel-powered car travel an average of 13,600 kilometers annually, according to the study. People who drive an electric car just go over this with 14,200 kilometers on an annual basis. It is a pity that Nissan does not go deeper into the data, because you could make the reservation that electric cars (in the Netherlands at least) are mainly driven for business purposes and therefore make more kilometers.
Of the European EV drivers, the Italians are the most eager to travel, with a mileage of more than 15,000 kilometers per year. Our country is in second place. Dutch electrical enthusiasts travel up to 14,800 kilometers per year. The majority of electric drivers (61 percent) are satisfied with the current charging infrastructure. But the fact that 39 percent are still not happy indicates that there is room for improvement.
Of course, a car with a combustion engine has great advantages. About half of the respondents cite the large range and ease of refueling as the most important plus points. About 30 percent of the motorists surveyed do not think about switching to electricity. Nearly 60 percent of them say that the limited range is the main problem. Some of the skeptics would like to switch if the range of electric cars improves, their charging becomes easier and the charging infrastructure more extensive.
