Here’s why so many Republicans won’t buy EVs
Democrats say they are way more likely than Republicans to buy electric cars. Could that change?


 But there is one thing holding the nation back from the dream of an 
all-electric future: political polarization. Sales data have consistently
shown that while Democrats have been buying the new cars in droves,
Republicans haven’t jumped onto the EV-buying train.

“The Republican is like, ‘They’re trying to ban gas cars — I’m not going to
buy a Biden-mobile,’” said Mike Murphy, a former Republican strategist who
runs the nonprofit EV Politics Project, which attempts to counter misinformation
on electric cars and encourage conservatives to adopt the vehicles.

According to a Gallup poll conducted in March of this year, 61 percent of
Democrats reported that they were “seriously considering” or “might consider”
buying an EV in the future — compared to only 24 percent of Republicans. At the
same time, 69 percent of Republicans said that they “would not buy” an EV in
future, compared to 27 percent of Democrats. The difference in Democratic
and Republican respondents who owned an EV was within the margin of error.
