Here, we presented new original data on purchasing New Energy Vehicles (NEVs) intention in extended Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) research model. The primary tool was survey questionnaire that was used to collect original data and verify hypotheses about NEV purchasing intentions. Data on six dimensions (including attitudes, subjective norms, perceived behavioral control, personal norms, low-carbon awareness and policy) was evaluated in this study. The presented data indicates that i) social-psychological factors have good correlation with intention and ii) acceptability of transport policies has positive influence on adoption of New Energy Vehicles. The presented original data have not been published elsewhere.
