Share of car buyers wary of car-related connected services for fear of hacking 2014

This statistic shows the percentage of new car buyers (strongly) agreeing with the sentiment that they are reluctant to use car-related connected services in case it opens their car up to being hacked into and manipulated. The U.S.A. was the only nation in which the majority of those surveyed did not express this fear. Interestingly, Americans were the only nationality more concerned with their privacy than they were with the possibility of their vehicle being manipulated by an outside source.

Percentage of new car buyers who (strongly) agree with the statement: "I am afraid that people can hack into my car and manipulate it (e.g., the braking system) if the car is connected to the Internet"
