Take a Survey to help understand decision-making when purchasing a vehicle

Michigan State University has asked us to share this survey to explore perceptions of cars and electric vehicles. Through this survey, we can better understand decision-making when purchasing a vehicle and perceptions of different charging options for electric vehicles. You must be at least 18 years old to participate in this research study. The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete.

If you own an electric vehicle (not a hybrid), please take the EV survey:

If you haven’t purchased an EV yet, please follow this link:

Everyone who takes the survey will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 Amazon gift card.
