Consumer Insights

The automotive industry is betting on consumer adoption of next-generation technologies such as automated driving, vehicle electrification and connectivity. Together, through complex user interfaces, these technologies are defining vehicles of the future. Automakers, suppliers, and other key players across the industry continue to make significant investments in the development of technologies for tomorrow’s automobiles. These investments hinge on the evolution of consumer attitudes as we move forward in a rapidly changing, highly digital world.

Desirability, affordability, and trust are all key factors that buyers consider when buying their next vehicle. Will you trust your next vehicle to drive itself in any situation? Do you think there is an adequate infrastructure to keep your electric vehicle charging?
