Sustainable mobility in the Covid era

According to data from the 2nd Continetal Observatory, Italians choose sustainable mobility

Italians want sustainable mobility! This is what data from Continental’s 2nd Observatory on Mobility and Safety revealed. The mobility that is loudly required for post-Covid is centered on respect for the environment. The Italian behavior and choices has changed and continues to change by the current pandemic so much that one in two people today travel by car for fear of contagion (+ 22.5% compared to 2019).

The Continental Observatory, in collaboration with the Euromedia Research institute, recorded the experiences, perceptions and expectations of road users, reaching the conclusion that today, without a doubt, the car is the vehicle chosen by Italians that in this way they feel safer.

Thanks to the incentives, many are thinking about buying a less polluting vehicle

In the last period we have witnessed a widespread economic difficulty, but, in the automotive market, the presence of incentives encourages the purchase of vehicles with new technologies and a lower environmental impact. In this sense, 64.5% of citizens declare themselves interested in changing their car:

  • 78.7% would like safe and ecologically clean cars;
  • only 15.4% rely on electric scooters, single-wheelers or bicycles;
  • more than half of Italians (53%) say they pay attention to green issues as before the health emergency;
  • motorcyclists (64.8%) and young people 67.6% (age group 18-24) are the most sensitive to these issues.

The VRM Group has also been operating in this way for some time, making important choices such as the study and development of electronic suspensions and traced analysis software” comments Florenzo Vanzetto, owner of the VRM SPA Group.
