The headline is just clickbait: the Ipsos survey (commissioned by Toyota but not a Toyota survey) said that "52% have seriously considered buying a more fuel efficient vehicle (including PHEV/BEV/whatever) in the next 1-5 years". "More efficient" could simply mean that 45% are considering moving from a pickup or SUV to a more fuel efficient pickup or SUV ... That is far from saying 52% would buy an EV.

"seriously considered" = "likely to buy" LOL

To paraphrase

... demand is "insanely high," but people just cannot afford ...
