Italians are not 'slaves' to cars, but they travel fewer kilometers than Germans, French, Spaniards and English. 6,680 km per year per capita compared to an average of 7,052 km for the other four countries, and 10,712 km per year per car against 12. (ANSA)



Italians are not 'slaves' to cars, but they travel fewer kilometers than Germans, French, Spaniards and English.

6,680 km per year per capita compared to an average of 7,052 km for the other four countries, and 10,712 km per year per car against 12,743 km on average.

The Germans, on the other hand, beat everyone, with 7,811 km per year per capita and 13,602 per car.

This is one of the unexpected data emerging from the new Unrae study "The automobile: Italians in comparison".


    On the other hand, it is known that Italy, among the five major European markets, enjoys two unenviable records: the highest motorization rate, with 642 cars per 1,000 inhabitants against an average of 553 in the other four countries, and the oldest park in the exception of Spain, with an average age of 12.2 years.

Italians, with more than one car in their family, use more cars than motorists in major European countries, keeping them for longer.


    Since they use the car less, Italians keep it longer, exposing it to more pronounced technological obsolescence.

A less efficient use from an economic point of view, given the higher incidence of fixed costs per km, with heavy environmental and social consequences due to the aging of the park.

According to Unrae data, at the time of scrapping, on average, cars reach the venerable age of 18.

But how many Italians, great motor enthusiasts, have a driving license?

Here 72% of adults have a driving license, an intermediate value between the - lowest - of Germany (61%) and Spain (65%) and the - highest - of the United Kingdom (82%) and France (90). %).
