JD Power Says That North Americans Are Still Wary of EVs and AVs

Based on a 100-point index scale, Americans rated their confidence in AVs at 35 and their confidence in EVs at 55. This is the first time that self-driving technology rating has decreased since the publications started measuring this stat. The EV rating, on the other hand, hasn’t changed.

Interestingly enough, this hesitancy about driverless technology and EVs extends to Canada. J.D. Power reports that Canadian drivers ranked confidence in self-driving tech at 36 and confidence in EVs at 57. That’s 3 and 2 points lower than previous ratings for these categories.
