There’s no denying that electric vehicles are on the rise. More and more automakers are building them, even vowing to eventually switch over entirely, and the infrastructure to charge them is popping up everywhere. And consumers are paying attention.

In June, EY conducted a survey of 9,000 consumers in 13 different countries: Australia, Canada, China, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Sweden, the U.K. and the U.S. Overall, 41 percent said that they wanted their next car to be electric. That’s up from 30 percent in September of 2020.

Italy, Singapore and South Korea all saw over 50 percent of consumers wanting to get an EV, at 63 percent, 53 percent and 51 percent, respectively. In both China and Sweden, 48 percent said the same, while in Japan and the U.K. the numbers stood at 42 and 40, respectively. Thirty-eight percent of German drivers want to go electric, while 35 percent in Canada and 30 percent in New Zealand do. And in both India and the U.S., only 28 percent answered that they wanted an electric vehicle, with that number dropping to just 17 percent in Australia.
