Leading British EV charging and smart energy technology business, Indra, today released the findings from a national survey into the latest attitudes and opinions of UK drivers towards electric vehicles (EVs), EV charging and electrification. Key findings from the Indra-dex survey suggest that perceived running and purchase costs are putting the brakes on greater EV adoption, meaning thousands of drivers could be missing out on significant cost savings and environmental benefits from switching their petrol and diesel vehicles for electric models.The survey of over 2,000 UK drivers reveals that despite almost half (47%) worrying about the environmental impact of driving a petrol or diesel vehicle, costs remain the largest barrier to purchasing an EV, with only 30% of respondents likely to buy an electric car in the next 12 months.  50% cited price as the biggest barrier, although less than a third (30%) said they were concerned with the lack of public charging points.
