Green Consumer Attitudes - Automotive

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0337456/Green-Consumer-Attitudes---Automotive.html

Introduction

As the automotive industry develops products and services to target environmentally conscious consumers, they require sophisticated intelligence. This brief presents and analyzes over 9,000 responses in 15 countries across three regions, that related specifically to the automotive industry, providing a base for advancing product development and marketing strategies.

Features and benefits

Detailed analysis of consumer perception about electric and hybrid vehicles compared to conventional cars.

Intelligence on drivers and barriers to the uptake of electric and hybrid vehicles.

Recommendations on how to harness the purchasing power of green consumers.

Highlights

When buying a new car, the initial purchase price and fuel efficiency are the most important decision criteria.

Consumers in the BRIC countries show the highest willingness to pay a premium for electric and hybrid vehicles.

Among wealthier Russians and Chinese, hybrid and electric car ownership seems inconceivable. In other nations, electric and hybrid car ownership seems impossible among those on lower incomes or impractical for motorists on middle incomes.

Your key questions answered

Obtain detailed demographic country-by-country data of consumers who would consider buying a hybrid or electric vehicle.

Establish market penetration rates of electric and hybrid vehicles by economic area by 2011 and 2013.
