Most people, according to a Mercedes-Benz survey, can visualize themselves in an EV.

According to a recent Mercedes-Benz survey, the majority of Germans desire to move to electric cars among other things.

Eighty percent of German drivers of luxury cars intend to switch to electric cars over the next five years, according to a recent Kantar survey for Mercedes-Benz Mobility. According to a new Kantar study for Mercedes-Benz Mobility, the majority of them (66 percent) would finance the car rather than buy it outright.

Additionally, respondents in the US, China, and Germany ranked manufacturers’ financial service providers as their top choices. Online shopping is also on the rise, with the majority of respondents in each of the three nations ranking digital communication with suppliers on par with personal contact in importance.

We notice a significant trend among automobile owners toward e-mobility and a desire for greater financial flexibility. Franz Reiner, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Mobility AG, stated that the study supports our aim of establishing the foundation for green mobility with adaptable financing choices. Personal counsel is still relevant despite the growing importance of the digital sales channel. In order to give our customers a smooth experience and the best level of support across all sales channels, Mercedes-Benz Mobility has been driving the digitalization of our offerings and the integration of digital and physical customer touchpoints for years.

Here are a few of the survey’s main conclusions:

Almost anybody can picture themselves driving an electric vehicle. The significant majority of respondents in each of the three nations can clearly picture oneself utilizing an electric vehicle inside the following five years. China outperforms the rest of the world with 96 percent, although Germany (80 percent) and the United States (70 percent) are close behind (68 percent ).

Globally, online car sales are becoming more and more common, and more people are accepting of in-car payments. Alternative credit solutions for autos are becoming more and more common in today’s increasingly digital society. Digital touchpoints like online communication with the supplier during the purchasing process are equally important to the majority of respondents in all countries as in-person interaction with the dealer.

A popular choice is still financing. With 46% of respondents choosing it to buy their next car, borrowing is the most common type of finance. Subscription (32 percent) and leasing come next (26 percent ). Finance options are preferred for the next car by users who have already financed or leased their current vehicle.

AT THE END, GERMAN DRIVERS PREFER TO OWN THE VEHICLE The ability to own the vehicle outright at the conclusion is one of Germany’s (46%) and America’s (43%) most popular justifications for choosing financing over leasing. One’s own financial situation is important in every nation, but it is particularly important in China and the United States. Being able to buy an automobile that individuals otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford is significant in the US.

The study demonstrates that the selection of a vehicle brand is significantly influenced by financial service providers. According to Peter Zieringer, Chief Customer Officer and Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Mobility AG responsible for Sales and Marketing, automakers and their customers’ financial service providers have a close relationship. Customer experience that is integrated is a crucial success factor. To produce such outstanding client experiences, Mercedes-Benz Mobility collaborates closely with the automobile brand.
