Since 2011, Continental as a technology company has periodically conducted mobility studies that focus on a variety of topics.
For the 2022 Mobility Study, together with the market and social research institute infas, Continental surveyed a total of 6,000 people over the age of 18 across Germany, France, Norway, the US, Japan and China in May 2022 on their personal mobility requirements. The aim of the Mobility Study, now in its seventh edition, is to provide an international comparison of people’s attitudes toward current and future developments in mobility and their personal usage habits. The topics covered in this year’s mobility study include general mobility needs, attitudes toward sustainability aspects, particularly in terms of electric mobility, as well as economic and technological developments related to cars. Against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic, a particular focus of the study was on the role of cars as a possible sanctuary and place of retreat in connection with travel and vacations.
