I may be biased (for obvious reasons if you look at my LinkedIn profile), but I thought the new report on consumer perceptions of self-driving cars from @AIG is excellent. The report is here:
Some of my key takeaways are:
– Consumers in different countries have significantly different attitudes to self-driving cars – USA and UK vs Singapore
– Unlike some articles which assume that consumers will favor a subscription model for self-driving cars (a recent one from the FT is here – https://www.ft.com/content/c97eaa72-eaf8-11e7-bd17-521324c81e23), the most popular response to the question of ownership in the survey was that consumers would like to own a self-driving car!
– The article quotes a statistic that vehicle autonomy will reduce accidents by 90% by 2050 (interesting consequences for the change to life expectancy that I discussed in an earlier post)
