By the end of 2021, it is planned to install 115 chargers for electric cars in Moscow parking lots, and by 2030, 150 thousand charging stations will be built in Russia. In this regard, the specialists of the SuperJob job search service interviewed 1,600 representatives of the economically active population of Russia about their attitude towards electric cars.
It turned out that 20 per cent of Russian drivers think about buying an electric car but the majority of Russians (64 per cent) do not yet consider this possibility, explaining their point of views, as a rule, by the lack of the necessary infrastructure and the high price of such a car.
It is specified that there are more buyers of electric cars among men (24 per cent versus 14 per cent among women). In addition, the interest in this type of transport depends on the income level of respondents. Thus, 9 per cent of Russians with a salary of up to 30 thousand rubles a month and 22 per cent of respondents with an income of more than 80 thousand rubles are considering buying such a car. In addition, most often the possibility of purchasing an electric car is considered by respondents aged 25 to 34 years (27 per cent).
Specialists noticed that owners of different types of engines show the same interest in electric cars. In particular, 20 per cent of Russians who own cars with a petrol engine, 22 per cent of owners of diesel engines, and 21 per cent of owners of cars with a gas engine are considering buying an electric car.
