Gasoline cars came next, at 26.7 percent, followed by electric and diesel cars, at 24.1 percent and 5.9 percent, respectively. The combined rate of hybrid and electric vehicles in the poll stood at 63.8 percent.

Among respondents willing to purchase an electric car, 62.1 percent said they believe electric vehicles would contribute to environmental protection. (Yonhap)
