Estonia: 90% of cars run on petrol, diesel fuel: survey

As many as 90% of cars used in Estonia are either petrol or diesel cars, according to a survey commissioned by insurance firm If Kindlustus, ERR reports. Meanwhile, 10% of cars have other types of engine, mostly hybdrid or gas-powered. Only 1% of respondents drive electric cars. The survey showed that 25% of respondents would like to buy a diesel car, while 22% would prefer a petrol car and 17% a hybrid vehicle. Another 8% would prefer an electric car, 8% a plug-in hybrid vehicle, and 2% a car running on LPG or hydrogen. Marion Meius, senior claims expert at If Kindlustus, noted that younger people were clearly keener on electric cars than older people.
