All but the most blinded by love fanbois knew this already, but this is the first data I've seen:
It's often said that once you drive an electric car, you'll never want to go back to one with a conventional engine. And various surveys of first-time drivers to actual plug-in car buyers support that notion. But some new data indicate that people who've owned an electric car don't, in fact, always buy another one. . . .
According to Edmunds data, only 29 percent of people who traded in an electric-powered vehicle (including pure EVs and plug-in hybrid cars) this year went on to purchase another electric-powered vehicle.
Interestingly, about 33 percent of electric-powered trade-ins this year instead went toward a new truck or SUV. . . .
