New research by Mazda shows Europeans still want to drive

By Faiming_low on 17 Feb 2018 in New technology

Attached Image With the help of Ipsos MORI UK-based market research firm), Mazda has concluded a research, showing European drivers still see future in internal combustion engines.

Nearly 60 percent of the 11,008 people polled still expect to see the internal combustion engine in action in the future of cars, unlike what many automakers believe. Conducted in September last year, the Mazda Driver Project research also showed findings where 31 percent of the drivers “hope that diesel cars will continue to exist” as electric cars become more common.

33 percent of the drivers said that if running costs were the same as an electric car, they would “prefer a petrol or diesel car”.

What about the autonomous vehicles? Only an average of 33 percent “welcome the advent of self-driving cars” and there is almost no evidence of greater support for self-driving in younger age groups across Europe.


In short, Mazda believes that driving is still a skill that people want to keep and cherish. Adding on, many people would like to see this skill retained for future generations, with an average 69 percent of drivers “hoping that future generations will continue to have the option to drive cars.”
