Top Advanced Technology and Feature Priorities and Preferences in Passenger Vehicles

Rapid advancement of technologies and their declining costs provide new opportunities to meet the increasingly stringent emission and safety standards of vehicles and significantly enhance the driving experience. Several technology alternatives and pathways are available for meeting desired functional and performance goals, some of which come with cost and/or other tradeoffs. Having the right technology-feature content that helps meet regulatory standards is critically important, providing at the same time maximum value to end customers.

Study Objectives

Identify influential factors of the vehicle selection process and the importance of key vehicle attributes in the vehicle purchase decision

Determine the purchase likelihood and optimal advanced technology-feature content by vehicle and psychographic segments

Measure the awareness of advanced technologies and features across vehicle system domains and their importance in the next vehicle purchase

Determine the priority and tradeoff between vehicle systems (key functional areas)

Map the consumer psychographic segments based on attitudes and behavior towards vehicles and technologies
