More than one in four Belgians fears autonomous cars to be unsafeThursday, 24 January 2019 15:26
A series of high-profile incidents may have contributed to the loss of consumers’ confidence, Deloitte justifies, while expecting gradual acceptance to come.
Moreover, only a third (33%) of consumers question the necessity to own one’s vehicle.
Even if nearly 7 out of ten consumers (69%) want their car to have connectivity features, they are not necessarily convinced by the entailed price. One third (33%) of Belgians are indeed not willing to pay more for a connected vehicle, and 56% do not intend to pay more than 1,200 euros.
With vehicles being increasingly connected, 40% of respondents are worried about the risks involved with personal information being collected and shared with third parties.
For 43% of respondents, the most important aspect of mobility is not connectivity, but the possibility to reach their destination as quickly as possible.
