Nearly three out of four Americans polled in a new survey say a 75-mile driving range is sufficient to meet their daily driving requirements.

The study was commissioned by BMW AG’s Mini unit, which plans to launch the all-electric Mini Cooper S E early next year in the U.S. More than 1,000 adults responded to the survey last month.

Among the study’s other findings, 63% of respondents indicate the best way to use an EV is for city driving and daily commutes. One-fourth of those surveyed say 30 minutes is an acceptable amount of time to charge an EV, but 28% answered “I don’t know” to the question.

Two-thirds of respondents believe EVs are for early adopters. Three-fourths don’t know where the closest EV charging station is located. As a result, additional consumer education about EVs is needed, the report concludes.
