Americans Still Show Little Enthusiasm For Hybrid Cars

Gas/electric hybrid cars still haven’t taken off in the United States like they have in other parts of the developed world, and new polling suggests that isn’t going to change anytime soon.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 13% of American Adults say they or an immediate member of their family bought a hybrid car, one using both a traditional motor and an electric engine, in the past year. That’s up only slightly from nine percent (9%) over three-and-a-half years ago. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 American Adults was conducted November 18-19, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
