Young people increasingly prefer car sharing to car ownership

Owning a car is no longer a priority for 18-year-olds, who now prefer car sharing and more sustainable mobility practices.

This is the trend emerging from research carried out by Bain & Company for "Quattroruote" magazine, which focused on the so-called "millennials" (people born between 1984 and 1995).
