According to Ipsos Affluent Europe 2017 research, luxury car brand owners (Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Maserati, Porsche or Rolls Royce) would be pretty pleased with their lives! But while they are quite content with life in general (85%), work (59%) and travel (73%) is less attractive for them.

Baby Boomers potentially best market for environmentally friendly cars

Baby Boomers* are the biggest market for new cars: 2.3 million Affluent Baby Boomers consider purchasing a new car in the next 12 months. There are more of them and they have more money to spend than Millennials***. However, it seems that the automotive industry has done a poor job promoting hybrid / electric cars to the more mature car buyers. Baby Boomers are less likely than Millennials to consider purchasing an electric or hybrid car (53% vs. 64%). However, they are more environmentally aware than their younger counter parts (68% vs 54%) and they more often consider a car being environmentally friendly is key to purchasing compared to Millennials (11% vs. 6%). A great opportunity for a car brand able to clearly articulate the benefits!
