The European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) has just published the 2016-2017 edition of its Automobile Industry Pocket Guide. Updated with the latest data, it provides a clear overview of one of Europe’s key industries, making it a demanded and valued tool for all those interested in automotive industry issues and policies.
Key data from the Pocket Guide
The latest employment data show that 12.2 million Europeans now work directly or indirectly in the automotive sector, producing 18.4 million cars, vans, trucks and buses a year. A fleet of 291 million motor vehicles provides efficient mobility and transport solutions across the EU. In 2015, 15.8 million new motor vehicles were sold in the EU, with automobile trade generating a healthy trade surplus of more than €100 billion. Find out more in the full publication.
Erik Jonnaert, Secretary General of ACEA: “A novelty to the 25th anniversary edition of our Pocket Guide, is that we are also making its content accessible through interactive infographics on our website, allowing everyone to explore the data in detail over time or to compare countries.” This means that the most commonly sought after figures, tables and statistics regarding Europe’s auto industry are now also accessible through a series of interactive infographics on the acea.be website.
Having the possibility to interact with the data, users can now easily discover interesting trends and patterns or find answers to specific questions. You can, for example, discover the share of diesel in new car registrations per country, or new passenger car registrations by alternative fuel type.
Start exploring these figures and statistics by visiting the ‘Interactive Infographics’ section of the website. Or watch this step-by-step tutorial video, in which we will walk you through a few examples to find out how these interactive graphs work.
