The Essentials: TWO in Five Motorists

Feb 16, 2007

TWO in five motorists would pay more for a "green" car but want tax breaks and cheaper insurance in return.

A total of 41% said they would be willing to fork out more for a low-emission vehicle, a survey from Virgin Money Car Insurance found.

Around 6%would be willing to pay between 11%and 30%more, but asked what factors would make them go green, most picked cuts in road tax and lower insurance premiums.

But 35% said they would not be willing to pay anything extra to have a more environmentally-friendly vehicle, while 22%would only pay up to 5%more for a green car.
