According to the latest Vanarama survey, the Tesla Model 3 is the electric vehicle with the highest recognition value for artificial intelligence. The car and van leasing company put the vehicle knowledge of an AI image generator to the test.
Vanarama used an AI image generator to recreate a total of ten car models using only the model names and editions like the Tesla Model 3. The AI images were then used in a survey of 2,001 people. Respondents were shown each image and asked to correctly identify the car model that the AI image generator had attempted to identify.
Although internal combustion engine vehicles were recognized the most by survey respondents, several electric vehicles such as the Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Cybertruck were also recognized. Keep in mind that Tesla traditionally doesn’t advertise.
The image generator created several real cars and the Porsche 911 was the most famous car. Vanarama pointed out that respondents were more familiar with conventional internal combustion engines than electric vehicles, and 51% of respondents correctly selected the AI imagery-generated photos of a Tesla Model 3.
“As the first-ever EV to sell over a million, that’s perhaps not surprising. The Model 3 also performs 255,000 online searches every month,” the company noted.
The Tesla Cyberturck was the second most popular electric vehicle in research. with 42% of respondents correctly identifying the AI-generated image.
Although the Nissan Leaf has been around for quite a while, it was the least recognized EV with only 33% of respondents recognizing the AI-generated attempt at the EV. 25% of respondents thought the AI would generate an image of a Toyota Corolla and 22% were clueless and couldn’t identify it as any model.
