Romanians are the most optimistic when it comes to the future of electric cars, a study by E.ON shows. Almost 70 percent of Romanian respondents believe that in the next 10 years electric cars will overtake conventional cars.

Overall, almost half of Europeans are certain that in the next 10 years more electric cars will drive on our streets than conventional cars. Taken separately, 68 percent of Romanian respondents believe electric cars will top buying preferences during the upcoming decade. By contrast, only 36 percent of German respondents and 33 percent of Swedes believe in the ascent of electric cars.

However, Romanian respondents are less optimistic when it comes to the advance of renewable energy. Specifically, 29 percent of Romanians estimate that in 2027 most energy produced in the country will come from renewable sources. By comparison, 43 percent of Germans, 39 percent of Turkish and 31 percent of British respondents believe more than half the amount of energy produced will come from regenerable sources, while only 18 percent of Czech and 17 percent of Hungarians believe that.

The ‘Living in Europe’ poll was commissioned by E.ON and carried out by Kantar EMNID among 8,000 respondents in Germany, Great Britain, Italy, the Czech Republic, Sweden, Turkey and Hungary in December 2016.
