4.1 Green issues

Although the Government is trying to guide motorists towards greener behaviour, the issue is not currently high on a motorist's agenda.

More than one in four do not believe it is 'realistic to take account of environmental issues in today's motoring world' - with a further third firmly stuck on the fence.

Only 41% would consider CO2 emissions when buying a car, down from almost half last year. More worryingly for environmentalists, 25% of motorists do not consider CO2 emissions at all now, up from 16% last year.

72% would consider buying a more environmentally friendly car if the tax incentives were better - but compared to last year motorists are less certain this would be a deciding factor in their actual purchase.
