In 2020 paralysis for anti-pandemic measures. Anfia and Unrae ask for incentives refinancing (ANSA)



 In April, registrations in Italy - according to data from the Ministry of Transport - were 145,033, with a jump of 3,276.8% on the same month of 2020, when everything was stopped due to the lockdown and the cars delivered were only 4,295 .

On the other hand, compared to April 2019, there was a decrease of 17.1%.

In the first four months of the year, the total number of registrations is 592,181, 68.4% more than the same period last year (-16.9% on the first quarter of 2019). 

The Stellantis group registered 58,404 cars in Italy in April, with a jump of 2,077.6% compared to a year ago, the month of lockdown, with a share of 40.3%.

In the four months, the cars sold by the group amounted to 238,398 (+ 63.6%).

Also in this case the share is 40.3%.

"The situation of the Italian car market is much more negative than what appears from the only significant comparison, the one with 2019, because at that time there were no incentives for the most popular cars, those with CO2 emissions from 61 to 135 g / km, while in the first half of 2021 these were in force for 250 million euros, the

Centro Studi Promotor points out

. "This appropriation - he explains - supported demand without being able to compensate for the impact of the pandemic and to this is added that the appropriation ran out on April 8, but continued to work for the disposal of the previously booked incentives and for a further modest allocation of 13 million to use the funds deriving from incentives booked in 2020 and not used. The push of incentives booked before the exhaustion of funds should continue for the first half of May ". Starting from the second fortnight of this month, according to the Centro Studi Promotor, "a much more severe crisis will open for the car market than that of the first quarter of this year, which could lead 2021 to close even far below of the catastrophic result of 2020 (1,381,646),year in which registrations returned to the levels of 50 years ago. A further decline on these levels would open a catastrophic scenario for the Italian car market that could even plummet to the levels of the 1960s with all that this entails also for the GDP of the country on which the car's impact and its related activities reach 12.5% ​​". It is therefore necessary, according to Gian Primo Quagliano, president of the Centro Studi Promotor, that" the Government disposes, without further delay, to refinance the incentives provided for by the Budget law for 2021 without wait for the PNRR because the times would be too long and because the PNRR practically ignores the car ".A further decline on these levels would open a catastrophic scenario for the Italian car market that could even plummet to the levels of the 1960s with all that this entails also for the GDP of the country on which the car's impact and its related activities reach 12.5% ​​".

"Without the refinancing of the incentives, well over 300,000 registrations could be at risk later in the year". This was stated by

the president of Unrae, Michele Crisci

. The Government's PNRR - he comments - seems to have neglected the car sector, one of the main markets in Europe in terms of volumes which also represents an important component of the country's ecological transition. It is therefore important that other regulatory instruments are soon found to make Eco-bonuses structural for 'green' cars with emissions up to 60 g / km CO2. In the short term, however. added Crisci - it is urgent to refinance the incentives for cars in the 61-135 g / km of CO2 range which so far, always with a view to sustainability, have made the most significant contribution ". The president of Unrae finally reiterates" l '' there is an urgent need to remedy the further severe penalisation of company cars in fringe benefits in Italy because,due to the failure to adjust the taxation to the new Wltp emission values, both the employees and the companies that grant the benefit pay a higher tax as it is still calculated on outdated emission values ​​".

"Even in April,

the apparent growth of the market is actually the result of the comparison with the worst April in history, given

that in 2020 sales were practically zero". This was stated by

Paolo Scudieri, president of the Anfia

. "The gradual restart of the market, with incentives in the 61-135 g / km range of CO2 emissions exhausted - he observes - is backtracking. The priority, at the moment, is therefore the refinancing of measures to support the demand for cars, but also of light commercial vehicles, measures that pay for themselves in a short time, with additional cash for the State, and which represent an investment for the modernization of the vehicle fleet, putting latest generation vehicles on the roads. indispensable intervention to support a sector that guarantees employment and economic growth, cited among those for which the Italian government intends to update national strategies also by Prime Minister Mario Draghi in the introduction to the NRP delivered to Brussels,and that it is experiencing a particularly difficult phase also due to international crisis factors such as the supply problems of microchips ".

Registrations of alternative fuel cars reached 45.4% in April 2021 and 42.6% in the first four months. The Anfia underlines this. Electrified cars represent more than a third of the market (36.7% in the month and 34.3% in the cumulative); among these, non-rechargeable hybrids account for 30% of the April market (for the third consecutive month a higher share than diesel) and 27.7% in the cumulative. Rechargeable hybrids, on the other hand, reached 6.7% share in April (plug-in hybrids 3.4% in the month and 3.6% in the cumulative, and electric 3.3% in the month and 3.1% in the cumulative). Finally, gas-powered cars represent 8.7% of the market in the fourth month of 2021 and 8.3% in the four-month period: LPG cars have a market share of 6.5% in the month and 6% in the cumulated and those with natural gas of 2,2% in the month and 2.3% in the quarter. The excellent performance continues - explains Anfia - of Fiat Panda, Lancia Ypsilon and Fiat 500 hybrids, which occupy the first three places in the mild / full hybrid segment. Among the Phevs, the Jeep Renegade conquers the first position in the sales ranking, while the Fiat 500 is the best-selling model among the electric ones, both in the month and in the cumulative. Diesel cars, for the third consecutive month, do not exceed the 25% share threshold and represent 22.5% of the market in April and 24.4% of the market in the first quarter of 2021. A slight increase compared to March , the share of petrol-powered cars: 32.1% in the month and 33% in the cumulative of the first four months.Lancia Ypsilon and Fiat 500 hybrids, which occupy the first three places in the mild / full hybrid segment.
