Female boomers have a lot of buying power in North America. The kids are finally old enough to drive themselves and that's being reflected in the automotive market. Just look have drastically minivan sales have plummeted. These women don't need a huge beast of a vehicle -- they want something fun and sporty that gets them to work, is gentle on the environment, has enough room for groceries (OK, and a few bags from Ralph Lauren and Banana Republic) and makes them feel alive again.
Will car manufacturers catch on? What are they doing to target these baby boomer women?
The day a company comes up with a fun, sexy hybrid, we'll have the answer!
