The interest of Argentines for electric vehicles is second only to China, where 93% are willing to buy a vehicle of this nature. In the U.S. the percentage drops to 54% said work at Deloitte.

“Achieving acceptance: Will consumers go up the wave of electric vehicles?” Is the title of the work of the consultant who surveyed consumers in 16 countries.

Among the most notorious acceptance rates, are also Brazil, where 86% of respondents ranked the position and was followed by buyers from Europe (69%), USA (54%) and Japan (48%).

According to the results, most respondents in Argentina suggested that autonomy, the premium charge and availability are important considerations in purchasing decisions. In this line, 83% of those who are willing to consider purchasing an electric vehicle expect to pay less than $ 80,000 after government incentives, while only 11% were willing to spend up to $ 2,000 more than the purchase of a MCI (Internal combustion engine).

On the other hand, 68% of respondents expect an electric car in Argentina has a minimum range of 320 km, although six out of ten runs less than 80 miles a day. Thus, the Argentines not only expect higher yield but highly significant considering the time and place to charge the battery.

The results showed that 74% of respondents would think to buy an electric car recharging should not exceed 2 hours and 91% would be relevant to be able to do it at home. For analysts Deloitte, the willingness to buy also depends on the alternatives related to the MCI, as price and fuel efficiency.
In the first case, 84% of respondents would show more interest if the cost of it is more than $ 6.7 per liter, while 80% would be less willing to buy an electric car if fuel efficiency was more than 32 km per liter.

According to the report, those who might be willing to buy electric cars are people, mostly with tertiary level education or higher, who are concerned about the environment and live in the city. For these profiles, electric vehicles are much higher in positive dimensions such as green and clean, operationally economical, safe, practical and stylish, but expensive to buy. However, for most respondents, the MCI is better in their autonomy, with better odds of being manufactured in the country and a better purchase price.
