This study explored the relationships among perceived values of environment friendly-cars and shared cars, product attitudes, subjective norms, and usage intentions. The study also examined the difference between the consumer attitudes toward environment friendly-cars and shared-cars. 357 survey responses of Chinese consumers were analyzed with structural equation modeling. The results indicate that the perceived values of environment friendly-cars had positive effects on the product attitude, while the environmental as well as economic value of shared-cars had positive effects on the product attitude. The product attitude, subjective norm and anticipated guilt had positive effects on the usage intention. The results are expected to provide useful marketing strategies related to both environment friendly-car and shared car industries.
