Would Hawaii visitors rent an EV if available?

Categories: Featured | Transportation

Visitors may hold the keys to driving down Hawaii’s transportation fossil fuel use ... or at least they’d like to. More than half of visitors recently surveyed by Ulupono Initiative last year (56 percent) said they probably would have rented an electric vehicle (EV), if available. More than a quarter (26 percent) said they “definitely” would. This high appeal of EVs among visitors is significant when considering that the state receives about 10 million visitors each year.
