2. 99% of people care about efficiency in the pursuit of car cost and *range*. The 2020 Ioniq sedan was nowhere close to the Model 3 in range, and the Ioniq5 is nowhere close to the range of a Model Y.
Priorities depend on the survey, although there are notable similarities among the top three. Castrol did a worldwide survey of both consumers and fleet managers, and also broke the results down by market. The top five items private customers thought necessary for mainstream adoption (the order was different for fleet managers) were, in descending order:
2. Charging time.
4. Charging infrastructure.
5. Vehicle choice.
The survey is a PDF titled "Accelerating the EV
olution: The tipping points to mainstream electric vehicle adoption". If you can't find it directly, googling "Castrol EV survey" should bring it up as the 2nd result. The worldwide average charge time respondents thought was required for mainstream adoption was 31 minutes. Note, that's to 100% not 80%. Items 1, 3 & 4 are usually the top three in every other survey I've seen (don't remember if charge _time_ was a question in the others), although the order shifts around a bit.
