NADA Used Car Guide

A sur­vey by NADA Used Car Guide of 2,100 indi­vid­u­als showed an inter­est in the idea of dri­ver­less mobil­i­ty, while main­tain­ing appre­hen­sion to the means of trav­el as a real­is­tic alter­na­tive to today’s trans­porta­tion options. Over half of sur­vey par­tic­i­pants think autonomous vehi­cles will be pub­licly avail­able with­in 10 years, while 23% of respon­dents antic­i­pate it tak­ing 20 or more years for self-dri­ving vehi­cles to become a real­i­ty for the gen­er­al pub­lic.
