Electric car trend mapped out

The residents of City Beach, Duncraig, Karrinyup, Nedlands and Canning Vale have been identified as Perth’s most likely electric car owners of the future.

The findings are based on an analysis of electric car ownership around the world that showed owners usually lived relatively close to the CBD, had two or more household vehicles and had access to a garage or off-street parking.

It also found electric car owners usually had above-average incomes, higher levels of education, high technology skills and were generally older than the average car buyer.

The findings are contained in a national discussion paper released by the Energy Supply Association of Australia.

The paper said electric vehicles had the potential to transform Australian transport.

“Electric car technology is becoming increasingly competitive with conventional vehicles,” the paper said. “Twenty-first century electric vehicles can exploit their technological advantages – performance, handling, safety and lower operating costs – to offset their disadvantages: shorter range and higher up-front costs.”
