This research explored the preferences and attitudes towards Electric Vehicles (EVs) in Perth, Western Australia (WA). EV drivers did not consider the EV driving experience to be different from their current vehicle and identified zero tailpipe emissions as the main benefit. The main survey was administered to representative household sampling frame. However, the returns were based towards highly educated, older participants, with higher levels of environmental concerns, social norms, and perceived usefulness of EV technology. The analysis explores the issue of response bias and the impact on choice models by issuing a second survey to a paid panel of respondents.
