90% of French people want to reduce their ecological impact

According to a recent survey, 9 out of 10 active French people want to reduce the environmental impact of their trips.

Ipsos unveiled the results of a survey, carried out for Vinci Autoroutes among 4,000 people, on the modes of travel of the French. While 87% of working people have kept the same means of transport as before the health crisis, with a majority (65%) preferring a private car to go to work, they are increasingly aware of impacts of their movements on the environment.

Indeed, 90% of French people want to reduce the carbon footprint of their trips, and are more motivated than ever: more than 1 in 2 working people give themselves less than 5 years to use means of transport that pollute less (55%). To do this, the preferred solutions are the purchase of an electric or hybrid car (35%), hydrogen (30%), but also walking or cycling (34%). The adoption of eco-driving is also a solution considered by 22% of respondents.

Brakes on ecological transition

Of course, this enthusiasm for the electric car has its limits, and certain measures would be able to accelerate this energy transition. First of all, the price of an electric car remains a barrier to buying : 73% of respondents say that a much larger purchase bonus would encourage them more. Charging infrastructures are also called into question: 68% say that a multiplication of terminals would encourage them more to take the plunge.

The fear of the “dry” blackout is still present in the minds: 64% of respondents believe that free assistance in the event of a breakdown would encourage them to switch to electric. Finally, 61% would like more free parking spaces for electric vehicles in their city.

Regarding shared mobility, only 3% of respondents practice carpooling or carsharing. A carpooling offer with reserved lanes on the motorway would interest 42% of them, while a regular carpooling offer with a short waiting time would be appreciated by 43% of respondents.
