Most auto industry execs think that half of today’s car owners will lose interest in owning a car by 2025. Of the nearly 1,000 execs surveyed via KPMG for Business Insider Intelligence, 60 percent agree, while 22 disagree, and 8 percent strongly disagree.
That’s not very representative because it targets people who already see the value of a car and ignores millennials who may never own a vehicle. While there is some mixed opinion about millennial attitudes toward car ownership. That generation is buying fewer cars than previous generations at their age.
Car-buying pessimists note that these younger adults are tending to flock to big cities and adopt low-cost, resource sharing, on-demand auto services.
