AAA: Survey Says, 25-Percent Considering All-Electric Vehicle for Next Purchase

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Staggeringly high gasoline prices have more drivers considering an all-electric vehicle for their next purchase.

The latest AAA survey says a quarter of Americans are on board with a plug-in for their next car.

But concerns remain: the high purchase price, not enough charging stations, the lack of travel range.

some drivers cannot even have a charging station at their home address.
