Report: Vehicles in Use

Each year, ACEA publishes its ‘Vehicles in use’ report that provides an extensive overview of the European motor vehicle fleet.

The January 2021 edition of the ‘Vehicles in use’ report can be downloaded by clicking here.

Per country, it shows the number of vehicles in use for each segment – covering passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, medium and heavy commercial vehicles, and buses – and how that fleet developed in recent years. The report also provides interesting statistics per vehicle segment for each country, such as:

  • Average age (as well as the year of first registration)
  • Share of each 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).
