Another survey finding that should surprise no one is that younger people are more open to switching to an EV than older people, in general. Among the Boomer generation, 87% are driving gas-powered vehicles, followed by 84% of Gen X people, and 75% of millennials.
Gen Z are the most likely people to drive an electrified vehicle (whether purely electric, hybrid or plug-in hybrid), but 69% are still driving gas-fueled cars. Gen Z are also the most likely to report they don’t drive or don’t primarily use the same vehicle, and fewer among them have built up the resources and earning power to afford a new EV.
