A study carried out by the TNS Sofres survey institute for the carmaker Aramisauto in June 2017, sheds light on the wishes of the French for the development of cars in the future. It was carried out among a representative sample of the population of 1,010 people over 18 years of age.
The survey called “The French and the automobile” precisely indicates that they take a close interest in the safety aspect of our cars. 60% of them want more technologies on board, and 31% of them, that these equipment are intended to improve safety on the roads.
But surprisingly, the regulatorand the speed limiter are not used by 49% and 41% of respondents, respectively. These speed-related tools are therefore not considered by many to be an appropriate response to improving road safety.
The French also appreciate equipment that facilitates everyday life and 51% are ready to invest more in an integrated GPS system or a parking aid. However, 74% are turning to less-equipped generalist brands rather than to well-equipped low-cost vehicles.
At 45%, the French want the efforts of the manufacturers to be directed towards the development of autonomous and connected vehicles. In general, if we refer to another study of the organization dated April 2017, 73% of these same manufacturers are the ones who expect the biggest in order to improve safety on the roads.
