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). The research focused on millennials in Italy, Germany and the United Kingdom and investigated the relationship between this generation and car ownership. Interviews were conducted on a sample of 2,700 people in the three countries.
