Girls Dig Dudes Who Own Green Cars (UK Poll)

Long gone are the days when the average girl thought a dude with a gas-guzzling pollution-mobile was cool. These days, responsibility, sensitivity, and care for our fellow humans and creatures rises to the top. At least, that’s what a recent UK poll has found.

The poll found that women thought of Nissan Leaf and Toyota Prius owners as “conscientious, intelligent and amongst the safest on the road.” Drivers of expensive sports cars, however, we stereotyped as arrogant by the ladies (53%). 44% also considered them self-centered, and 38% considered them a danger on the roads.

Interestingly, 48% of men thought that an expensive car would make them more attractive to the opposite sex.

Notably, polls come with a host of methodological limitations and downsides, and the details of this specific poll don’t seem to be available online anywhere. So, just take it all with a grain of salt, and we’ll let you know if we learn more.
