green car

If you think girls like sport cars, bling, and fancy clubs… you’re so last year! Well that’s not really what I think, but it’s what a study conducted by GM as part of this year’s Challenge X competition showed. I’m not really sure how relevant this is, but the results baffled me to be honest and you really should see this. Just fasten your seat belt, you’re probably going to be needing it.

  • 88 percent of women ay they’d rather chat up someone who owns the latest fuel-efficient car versus the latest sports car. Really, where are these women ?? It’d really be something to meet some of them… ’cause there aren’t so many sport cars driven by single men these days.
  • Eighty percent of American car buyers would find someone with the latest fuel-efficient car more interesting to talk to at a party than someone with the latest sports car. This I cand understand! Sport cars may be nicer to look at, faster, and eye catching, but green vehicles are definitely more interesting and they’re definitely going to be an important part of our future.
  • More than 4 out of 10 (45 percent) 18- to 43-year-olds say it’s a fashion faux pas nowadays to have a car that’s not green or environmentally friendly. OK, this is already getting weird. How many classy people drive green cars? The way I see it, there’s a big chance of hypocrisy in the people that answered. Still, really, really interesting to see these statistics… not quite what you’d expect.
