connections what to expect on a special train journey. and for us well. let's start off with a look at the geneva motor show for the last eighty eight years the coc invention has been a platform for the latest and greatest an automobile design and technology for decades car companies have viewed men as their key demographic and marketed their products to male clientele that cliche couldn't be further from the truth and life of international women's day we explored what comic is a doing to change this outdated business model. from high powered to compact from practical outlandish. for this car drivers need a pilot's license. the eighty eighth she. neiva international motor show would seem
11:32 pm
once again to be aimed at men who like muscle cars and dark colors with abundant horsepower. the colorful compact seem to be intended for women. but is this really what they want in cars. i like big cars with lots of room i've got two kids and a dog so i need a lot of space for me it's important that when i close my car door i feel it all it's the whole package if it's in a design the ass and then sit down everything to get it is what. contrary to the cliches women tend to prefer as uvas. although they are generally regarded as men's cars seventy percent of those driving them are women. italian polo to me nellie has been researching consumer behavior in the automotive industry since two thousand to. this u.v. just as heels are tall which gives drivers
11:33 pm
a sense of security because of s.u.v.s have room for children luggage space and often all wheel drive so you're prepared for snow and other kinds of bad weather because i know. what's important for many men is what's under the hood most male buyers appreciate the innovative technology found in these new b.m.w. and jeeps. ninety percent of the customers buying them are male. women tend to look for the sort of comfort and design found in his honda. the japanese carmaker will put this electric model on the market in twenty nine hundred . men and women appreciate features like parking assists and sat navs. your business or would we know from studies that women make or influence fifty to eighty percent of buying decisions and not just of cars. to be honest it would be
11:34 pm
foolish to ignore this fact and not take women's preferences into account and. women apparently aren't into mercedes only twenty percent of the brands buyers are female. that's even a smaller ratio than for porsches beamers an out he's. perceived as trying to improve its image with women with a p.r. campaign titled she's mercedes. the company hopes that british style icon sarah jane adams will succeed in changing some minds. you could speak any god it's less about tailoring advertising to women we want to listen to and learn more from women we want to know what features they're looking for in a car and try to find communicative feigns i want to get to the team. but there is some truth to some cliches compact cars are often a turnoff for men. and certain brands do do better with women even if that may not be the result of anything intentional. x.x.
11:35 pm
and the kids that took saddam develops its cars based on what customers in general want not what men or women or what big and small people prefer. people's fine decisions reflect the needs they have at certain points in their lives. both sexes are demanding when it comes to automotive quality and safety. no one knows what the car the future will look like a v.w. is ideal vision comes without a steering wheel it's operated by gestures and spoken commands and it's projected to hit the market by twenty thirty. whether you're a man or woman a child or a grandparent everyone will come together automotive life will be completely different. even if the majority of visitors to the geneva motor show are men car makers ignore women's wishes at their own peril.
