If traditional automotive executives are worried about chip shortages, economic concerns, and the move to electric vehicles. They now have a new reason to remain awake: consumers were willing to buy even before Apple Car.
Strategic Vision has announced the findings of an annual survey of 200,000 consumers. This year’s study includes Apple Car for the first time, as well as at least 45 car brands.
According to the survey results, 26% of respondents stated they would “certainly consider” purchasing an Apple Car. This ratio is third, trailing only Toyota (38%) and Honda (32%), and higher than Tesla’s 20%.
Apple Car’s brand “impression” was represented by 26%, and its “quality impression” was represented by 24%, placing top. Tesla’s percentage is barely 11%.
