Why Millennials Aren't Buying Cars

30.428 Aufrufe

Veröffentlicht am

46% of 18-24 drivers would choose internet access over their car (NYT 2012). Wait, how is that a choice? And what does the internet have to do with car ownership anyway?
Adapted from a presentation at Kain Automotive (kaintraining.com), I explore why exactly millennials aren't enamored with the ideal of cars--and how car dealerships and brands can change their mind. Feel free to tweet me with questions (@LindseyKirchoff) or email HowToMarketToMe@gmail.com. Enjoy!
