Hi i am a final year student studying business information management. I have created a questionnaire in order to develop an understanding of consumer behavior towards environmental friendly vehicles in the UK.

I would be grateful if you can complete the questionnaire it will only take 1-2 minutes.

This questionnaire has been carried out for a researcher within Huddersfield University, by a student conducting a dissertation. All the participants within this questionnaire will remain anonymous and all responses will be treated with full confidentiality. If any more information is required please contact me on [email protected].

Welcome. As a final year student do you really have an i8?

I had a look at your questions and was a bit puzzled. What is the objective of them and what do you mean by "environmentally friendly" as that is a very subjective description?

But the questions don't differentiate - "Do you believe that Eco Friendly Vehicles have a good return on investments?"

Ignoring that no mainstream vehicle provides a "return on investment", clearly any value benefit (maybe?) will be substantially different depending on type of car and I can't see how the data will be of any real value. Sorry...

I guess if it is a taxi it would have an ROI? :)

Hi @Hasnain - I really hope that your investigation into :- "..............consumer behaviour towards environmental friendly vehicles in the UK." - reaches a sensible conclusion. But I fear that this questionnaire may not help much. You will get any ten people with identical opinions giving ten different answers as the questions are framed so poorly. Such an exercise aimed at early adopters will always give a skewed result. And as the general public have no clue about such vehicles - except the many myths that they repeat to us daily - then any opinions from there will also give a wrong result. GIGO. But good luck with the dissertation. A consensus of behaviour can be found. That it is deeply flawed is irrelevant. But as your assessor will be as equally clueless as the general public, who knows - you may even find that they agree with your conclusions.

You're asking on an EV forum for answers about opinions on essentially EV cars.
Not trying to be rude here but have you heard about a thing called bias?
