I asked Consumer Reports’ Chris Harto if more people are considering EVs since more and more different types of EV vehicles are being made that fit families and the activities that families do. Here’s what he said. Harto: "You know most people are curious. Not everybody is ready to pull the trigger and buy an EV today, but most Americans are pretty curious and there's a rapidly growing segment of consumers who are really all on board and really won't buy anything except an EV right now. I think a lot of it is that EVs have just gotten really good. The, you know, really in the past three years EVs have gone from a curiosity, science experiment, really not especially easy to live with to really being fully functioning vehicles that can deliver everything a family needs at, you know, within their budget, you know, and it's hard to look over the fact that they're just so much more fun to drive." Harto found that 71% of Americans are considering buying or leasing an EV. With today's auto news, I'm Laura Reynolds.
