Registrations of new and 2nd hand cars in 2013
In this report, the fleets of passenger cars registered in Belgium for the first time (Ã”Ã‡Ã¿new') or for a second or more time (Ã”Ã‡Ã¿second-hand' or Ã”Ã‡Ã¿used') have been analysed. This has been done for vehicles registered in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and finally 2013. The purpose of this report is to follow up the characteristics of the car fleet, especially concerning its environmental performance, but also technical aspects are considered. The considered technical and environmental indicators are: fuel type, engine displacement, engine power, vehicle weight, CO2 emissions, particulate filter and Ecoscore. The main focus lies on the most recent registrations in 2013, but the results are always compared with the previous years, of which databases are available, to show the evolution of the assessed indicators. The results are generally depicted on a Belgian level, but more detailed results are also available for the different regions (Flanders, Wallonia, Brussels Capital Region (BCR)), to allow mutual comparisons and regional evolutions. In addition to these analyses, a distinction has been made towards the type of ownership of the newly registered vehicles: cars owned by a natural person or by companies. The latter are even further divided into company cars owned by the company itself (Ã”Ã‡Ã¿bought') or by a leasing company.
