      Due to the popularity of electric vehicles, almost all major automakers are producing or have plans to produce these vehicles. As a result, electric vehicles sales have increased significantly during the last decade. However, there is currently no widespread adoption of these vehicles. This paper analyzes survey results from electric vehicle drivers to determine their motivation for purchasing electric vehicles as well as their perspectives on the benefits and limitations of electric vehicles compared to conventional vehicles. In addition, this research analyzes electric vehicle owners' preferences as well as their choice for their next vehicle. Result of this research provide valuable information to engineering mangers on the benefits and barriers to the widespread deployment of electric vehicles. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
