Each year, ACEA publishes a ‘Vehicles in use’ report that provides an extensive overview of the European motor vehicle fleet.
Per country, it shows the number of vehicles in use for each segment – covering passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, medium and heavy commercial vehicles, as well as buses – and how those numbers have developed over recent years.
The report, which can be downloaded by clicking here, also provides interesting statistics per vehicle segment for each country, such as:
- Average age, as well as the year of first registration
- Fuel type
- Number of vehicles per 1,000 inhabitants
In addition, the ‘Vehicles in use’ report looks at the number of cars per household in various countries, their average ownership period, the share of second-hand cars, as well as the average distance travelled (both for petrol and diesel cars).
