They are hungry for content, as very little hasbeen communicated effectively. (NOTE: Nothing in Mexico like the Discovery Channel exists, eventoday.) More Hispanics drive gasoline hogs (trucks/low mpg) and more drive fuel efficient cars (i.e., smaller andless expensive). Green transportation: High income Hispanics may buy a hybrid car more than non-Hispanics at sameincomes. Fewer Hispanics share the ride. Sometimes and never use public transportation or car pools is higherthan non-Hispanics. Media habits are different: TV then websites for high income. Websites then TV for high education.High income Hispanics may see hybrid cars on TV and make their choice from this exposure withoutusing the web as often. In addition, highly educated Hispanics may seek more detailed information thatone can find online, before shopping for their hybrid car. 19. Summary: What can you take-away?
