There is a new generation of EV buyers, and we know who they are and what they want. EVForward™ provides unprecedented market research insight into the attitudes, behaviors and opinions of the next generation of EV buyers. Combining Escalent’s deep expertise in Automotive & Mobility, Energy and Technology, EVForward™ owns insight that does not exist anywhere else in the market. If you’re talking to consumers about electric vehicles and you’re not using EVForward™, you’re creating solutions for the wrong people.
Analyzing the US and European new vehicle buyer markets, our annual EVForward Market Profile delivers a comprehensive, moment-in-time analysis of the EV market, leveraging a panel of tens of thousands of respondents.
Furthermore, we identify the next generation of EV buyers—who look very different than first generation EV owners and current Tesla drivers—using our proprietary EVForward Score that ranks each person’s intention to purchase an EV based on more than 600 lifestyle and personality characteristics. Through advanced techniques, we have proven these future EV buyers are 15 times more likely to purchase an electric vehicle than the average new car shopper. We also created unique consumer segments of EV Intenders, EV Open and EV Resistant buyers to complement your internal EV buyer segmentation with more details than available anywhere else.
Altogether, you’ll know who will buy next and how to be in the right place, at the right time, with the right message.
