Car Buyer Survey Says – Hybrids and Hydrogen


New car buyers worldwide are looking to hybrids, hydrogen-powered and alternative fuel vehicles as the wave of the future. So says a recent Automotive Trends Survey conducted by PLUS. The survey found that recent and potential car buyers in the United States, Great Britain, Germany, India and China were tending toward buying “greener” vehicles. Of the 3,500 people surveyed, 42.7% considered hybrid as the power-train of the future with hydrogen-powered vehicles finishing a close second at 41.9%. A surprisingly low 11.5% saw diesel and traditional fueled cars in their auto buying future. A robust 38.1% saw plant- based fuels as being the next big thing. More than 50% of Chinese vehicle purchasers see hydrogen as the “future automobile power source.”
