Millennials Are More Likely to Buy a Self-Driving Car

Half of older Americans will stay on driverless sidelines

Half of retirement-age Americans say they would never buy a car that can drive itself, even if they’re behind the wheel and able to retake control, a survey by car-shopping website Edmunds found. Millennials -- who purchase only about 11 percent of new cars today -- are less nervous about the fledgling technology, with nearly two-thirds willing to own a self-driving vehicle within the next decade. “The continued advances in autonomous technology should coincide with millennials’ long-awaited mass entry into the market,” Edmunds said in a report published Monday.
