Motor vehicle ownership in the United Kingdom (UK) 2017, by age group British people aged 60 years and older were the age group with the highest share of car ownership, according to a 2017 Statista survey. The most likely to buy a car were 18-29 year-olds, with 22 percent of respondents reporting they did not own a car yet, but were planning on purchasing one. The survey was conducted as part of Statista’s Global Consumer Survey on consumption and media usage in 49 different countries.
Men more likely to be car owners

The survey also found that a larger share of men were motor vehicle owners compared to women. One fourth of female respondents stated that they did not have a car and were also not about to buy one. In contrast, 16 percent of men reported they did not own such a vehicle.

Ownership highest in Northern Ireland

Motor vehicle ownership was highest among residents of Northern Ireland, with eight out of ten people having a car and a further 12 percent interested in purchasing one. These findings were unsurprising given the discussion surrounding increased ticket prices for public transport in Northern Ireland.
