The mention of a self-driving car is enough to make some enthusiasts cringe while others embrace the possibilities, but in the wake of Ford firing CEO Mark Fields and replacing him with Jim Hackett, the leader of Ford’s self-driving car program, we can’t help but wonder if Ford is feeling increased pressure to meet the coming wave of autonomous demand.
The automotive buyer intelligence firm, Autolist.com, recently released a study showing that a large number of millennials (Gen Y) and centennials (Gen Z) are interested in buying an autonomous vehicle today.
According to the study, after surveying over 8,576 vehicle owners from all 50 United States, it turns out that almost 50-percent of centennial and millennial men are ready to buy a fully autonomous car today. Not only that, but trust in current semi-autonomous technologies is increasing – for example, 75-percent of Audi drivers already trust level 2 vehicle autonomy technology.
