Client Acceptance of Self-Driving Vehicles Soars, Examine Says
A new study from the Capgemini Research Institute suggests that consumer acceptance of self-driving cars in the U.S. will increase over time, with preference for riding in autonomous vehicles set to double in the next 10 years. While only 30% of those surveyed would prefer to ride in a self-driving car over a traditional vehicle over the next 12 months, by 2029, 63% would prefer this method, the study found.
These and other results were published today as part of the institute’s report, “The Autonomous Car: A Consumer Perspective.” The company said consumers are seeing huge benefits with autonomous vehicles in terms of fuel efficiency (73%), reduced emissions (71%), and saving time (50%). More than half of those surveyed said they would be willing to pay up to 20% more for an autonomous vehicle over a standard one.
