Even with gas prices going down, people still care about fuel efficiency! Turns out, according to the J.D. Power and Associates’ 2015 Avoider Study, the main factor people take into consideration before purchasing a new car is MPG!
Consumers are “going to own these vehicles for many, many years. They want [mileage] to remain low during their ownership period,” research director Jon Osborn told Automotive News.
Among buyers of compact, small and midsize cars, and compact MPVs, 14% said that gas mileage was the most influential reason for deciding on the vehicle they ended up purchasing and 16% of individuals rejected a vehicle in favor of a more fuel efficient model.
“Consumers know that, although gas prices are low today, the cost of fuel will likely increase during the time they own their vehicle,” said Arianne Walker, senior director, automotive media & marketing at J.D. Power. “Clearly, consumers are considering the total cost of ownership when selecting their new vehicle.”
