Title

Consumers’ attitudes towards electric cars: A case study of Hong Kong

Language

English

Abstract

The paper presents the results of a survey carried out in Hong Kong to gauge people's attitudes towards the environmental aspects of electric cars. The survey shows that people in general recognise the positive environmental benefits of electric cars, but express concerns over their environmental costs, in particular those of battery waste and increased airborne pollutants emitted by power plants when the electricity is produced. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
