Are car owners ready to abandon their personal cars?


In connection with the increase of prices for cars and their maintenance, many car owners began to save on the operation and maintenance of their cars in 2017. As it was shown by the joint online survey * of the analytic agency "AUTOSTAT" and the Auto Mail.Ru portal, some of them (44% of more than 17 thousand respondents) are ready to abandon their personal cars in order to save money.

At the same time, 22% of the participants are ready to abandon their own vehicle if their maintenance becomes too expensive. Another 20% - will do it easily, in case that they can get to the places they need by another transport. For 2% of respondents car ownership is not at all important. Summing up these answers, the experts concluded that if the impact of the crisis in the Russian economy continues and starts to affect the car market even more severely, and the infrastructure of public and alternative transport becomes more developed and affordable, 44% of car owners admit the possibility of refusing to own their own vehicle.

As an alternative to a personal car, public transport took the first place (61% of car owners gave it to him). The second most popular place was the use of taxis (20%), the third was the services of car-sharing (8%). About 5% of the votes were received by the search services of fellow travelers.

It is curious how the votes were distributed depending on the geography of the survey participants. For example, residents of St. Petersburg, as an alternative to personal transport, have chosen oftener public transport, Moscow residents – car-sharing. Regions were more loyal to the taxi and services associated with finding fellow travelers.

* Online survey was conducted in January of 2018, it was attended by more than 17,000 car owners.
