A Surprising Number of People Name Their Vehicles
According to a survey by the GM Buy Power Card, 42 percent of Americans name their vehicles. That's not surprising considering that the car you drive is a reflection of your personality.
Naming a vehicle takes a little time behind the wheel though, and 43 percent of drivers said they wait at least a month before choosing a name for their car. Once a name is chosen, nearly three-quarters (73 percent) of respondents said that naming the car made the bond they felt with their vehicle stronger.
Other factoids from the survey include:
Women were 7 percent more likely than men to name their cars
About 55 percent of cars identify as female according to owners
That makes Betsy and Betty the most popular car names
82 percent of those drivers said they share that name freely with family and friends
56 percent said car personality, make and model, and color influence a vehicle’s name
78 percent of drivers say they know someone else who has named their car
Silver is the most popular car color
