In a poll conducted by "Emirates Today" on "Twitter"

Buying a new “electric” car in the UAE 2022 attracts 41% of interest

The results of a poll conducted by "Emirates Today" revealed that 41% of those who participated in the 24-hour vote preferred acquiring a new electric car during 2022, at the expense of acquiring traditional cars with combustion engines or hybrids.

The results of the vote, in which 232 people participated on the Twitter platform, showed that environmentally friendly electric cars took first place, compared to 32% of the votes that preferred the continuity of traditional cars with combustion-fuel engines, while those wishing to own hybrid cars were limited to 26% of the votes. , whether those classified as electric hybrids, which are based on recharging the battery on a household electrical socket, or those in which the battery can be charged or provide the generator with the necessary electrical energy through the concept of kinetic energy recovery for the braking process.
