WAAI Finds Women More Inclined to Green Car Purchases
Women are turning to more eco-friendly vehicles this fall, according to an automotive expert, as the range of models and features expands.
"Women are looking to be more green," says Jody DeVere, president of the Women's Automotive Association International. "Women are going to be looking for those models where they're going to help the environment and get the best fuel economy."
DeVere, who offers automotive advice for women on the website Askpatty.com, says hybrids and fuel-cell vehicles are now the most desirable choice for women on the road. DeVere says manufacturers are changing gears and introducing more fuel-efficient vehicles to consumers in the wake of the summer's record high gas prices. "I think fuel economy is going to drive a lot of car buying decisions from now on," she said. "Vehicles getting over 30 miles per gallon are definitely going to be preferred in all classes."
