Research finds buying a used EV appeals more to women (69%) than men (61%), although they were evenly split (30%) when considering nearly-new EVs less than two years old. Overall, the inclination to buy a used EV was strongest among petrol or diesel owners (81%), falling to just 18% of those currently owning an EV.
The research also found some of the traditional barriers to buying an EV have diminished since last year, notably access to charging points (-12%) and cost of purchase (-21%). However, concerns over the cost of charging saw the biggest year-on-year increase (+12%).
