In the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, there is growing consumer interest in electric vehicles (EVs), according to a Morning Consult survey for General Motors.

A report surveyed infrastructure for charging, long-term cost reductions, car alternatives, and EV awareness. The outcome revealed a rise in EV enthusiasm among car buyers.

Jack Uppal, the president and managing director of General Motors Africa & Middle East, said,

“It is encouraging to see the rising favorable sentiment toward EVs that this Morning Consult survey has revealed. The volume and variety of EV options that we plan to introduce to the market will grow as we move closer to realizing our vision for the future of mobility and as consumer awareness and consideration shift away from concerns about affordability and range and toward enthusiasm for the ownership potential of these new technologies.”

95% and 93%, respectively, of people in the UAE and Saudi Arabia are aware of all-electric vehicles. This awareness is shared by age and gender demographics in both nations. According to the study, 63% of Saudi Arabian and 70% of UAE respondents were seriously considering purchasing an EV.

According to General Motors, estimates of global sales indicate that the market for electric vehicles will grow from $10 billion in 2023 to $90 billion in 2030. The carbon-neutral initiatives of the UAE and Saudi Arabia, according to the statement, have increased knowledge of EV offers and their advantages.

The poll also revealed that interest in EVs is driven by cost savings. Fuel costs and environmental issues were mentioned as reasons for interest in EVs by 64% of UAE respondents. The price of gasoline and the availability of less expensive EVs, according to 61% of Saudis, piqued their interest.
