The electric car industry should focus its efforts on reaching car buyers in the capital, according to Baringa Partners. New research reveals Londoners are more likely than other Brits to consider buying a 100% electric car, and believe they will overtake petrol/diesel cars in just over a decade.

More than a fifth of people in the UK are unconvinced that electric cars will reduce air pollution, according to new research from Baringa Partners. With the Government’s final Air Quality Plan due to be published by the end of the month, Baringa is urging the Government to do more to raise public awareness of the benefits of cleaner vehicles.
Electric vehicle uptake may increase over the next few years to levels far above UK Government targets. In research undertaken by Baringa Partners, nearly a fifth of people said they would consider buying an electric vehicle for their next car – double the Government goal for electric cars to make up 9% of the fleet by 2020. However, concerns over purchase price and range mean nearly a third of people believe electric cars will never overtake petrol and diesel vehicles. Baringa is urging the Government to work harder to ensure continued support for the industry and remove barriers to purchasing electric cars.
