Survey Shows Support for Self-Driving Cars

By Staff Writer April 08, 2019

CarGurus announced automotive consumer research findings that benchmarked last year’s inaugural CarGurus Self-Driving Car Sentiment Survey. This year’s survey uncovered that over the past year there was a perception shift regarding self-driving cars. Consumers expressed greater enthusiasm for self-driving car development overall, and also showed a stronger likelihood of owning a self-driving car in the next 10 years.

The survey found: 
Respondents that were excited about the development of self-driving cars increased from 21 percent in 2018 to 32 percent, and the respondents concerned about them decreased from 47 percent to 37 percent.

Twenty-eight percent of respondents specified they could own a self-driving car in the next 10 years, more than double the 13 percent from last year.

When looking into which companies consumers trust the most to develop self-driving cars, the survey found that similar to last year Tesla remains atop the most trusted, and increased its lead.

Twenty-nine percent of respondents say they trust Tesla most to produce a self-driving car, up from 25 percent in 2018.
