Mobility Monitor

Mobility Monitor

LeasePlan, together with leading global research firm Ipsos, has released the Electric Vehicles and Sustainability section of its annual Mobility Monitor. This is an international survey of over 4,000 people in 16 different countries into the big issues facing drivers and the automotive industry in 2019. The key findings of the EV and Sustainability edition of this year’s Mobility Monitor are:

A surge in positive attitude towards electric driving, with 61% (58% UK) of respondents indicating that they view zero-emission electric driving favourably. Nearly half of all surveyed (47% UK) said that their opinion towards electric driving has favourably improved over the past three years

An increasing amount of respondents declared their intent to lease an electric vehicle. Among those planning on leasing a car in the next 5 years, two in five (40%) say they will choose an electric vehicle (30% UK)

The benefits of electric driving are increasingly clear: EVs contribute to fighting climate change through lower CO2 emissions (according to 60% (70% UK) of those planning to go electric in the next five years); help improve air quality in towns and cities through lower NOX emissions (43% / 48% UK); and have an overall lower running cost (60% / 71% UK)
