The Covid-19 crisis has shown us how unthinkable events can change the world overnight. Since the beginning of the pandemic, borders have closed, planes stopped flying, and entire countries went into different phases of lockdown. All social norms that society took for granted for decades suddenly changed, and we are now living in a "New Normal" that has fundamentally altered the way the world thinks about a range of topics, including mobility.
Amid these unprecedented circumstances, LeasePlan is publishing it’s annual Mobility Insights Report (formerly the LeasePlan Mobility Monitor). The Insights Report is a comprehensive survey of driver opinion regarding the most important subjects facing the industry, produced in partnership with leading research firm Ipsos. This year, the survey was conducted across 22 countries. This first edition looks at ‘the New Normal’, probing driver opinion of how the Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we think about mobility, including: how respondents now prefer to travel, how they feel about their role in fighting climate change, as well as the role of delivery vehicles (or LCVs) in towns and cities given the recent boom in online shopping.
