Almost half of all Europeans believe electric cars will outnumber vehicles with combustion engines within a decade.

That’s according to the results of a new survey from E.ON, which show Romanians are most confident in the future of electric transport, with 68% thinking this will happen.

Germans are less optimistic, with only 36% thinking the shift will happen in the next 10 years.

The survey, which questioned around 8,000 people from across eight countries, illustrates 43% of Germans predict more than half of the energy produced in 2027 to be renewable.

It was followed by Turkey (39%), Sweden (35%) and the UK (31%), with the Czech Republic and Hungary trailing at 18% and 17% respectively.

At the same time, 35% of Turkish people questioned are convinced that robots will be running households in 10 years.

Only 18% of the British public said they expected this would happen.
