Survey challenges for electric and autonomous cars
And a new survey by J.D. Power and Associates shows that U.S. consumer confidence in electric cars is very low. Buyers know electric cars are good for the environment, but relatively few would consider buying one, according to results released by J.D. Power and Associates.
The news is not good for either, but it’s better for electric vehicles than for autonomous cars. While J.D. Power respondents were not very optimistic about electric cars, they were even less optimistic about autonomous cars. Bloomberg has created an overall confidence index for each new type of car.
For electric vehicles, it averaged 55 percent; for autonomous or autonomous cars, there were only 39. Almost half (48 percent) expressed concern about the abandonment of control. Another 33 percent have a slightly different view on it, saying they don’t want to give up the pleasure of driving.
