Eco Friendly Motoring Approved By Younger Drivers

Published: 8/3/2010

A study carried out by esure car insurance has found that younger drivers are more likely to buy an environmentally friendly car than older drivers.

Over 80 percent of drivers under 25 would consider using a hybrid, electric or bio fuel car according to the esure survey results, reflecting their attitude to the future of the planet or perhaps their concern at the rising cost of fuel. In fact 20 percent of all drivers said they would think about moving to a more fuel efficient vehicle to save money.

The hybrid and electric cars are certainly cheaper to run than existing petrol models, though initial purchase cost is high. Car insurance premiums are also relatively high due to the cost of any repairs that may be needed. Being new and innovative means parts cost much more than regular models.
