Valle d'Aosta, with 2,418 cars per thousand inhabitants, and the Province of Trento, with 1,631 vehicles per thousand inhabitants, are the two regions with the highest motorization rate in Europe. It emerges from the Eurostat yearbook, which highlights how all the Italian regions characterized by large portions of mountainous territory are among the European ones with the highest number of cars: the province of Bolzano is in fact fourth (1,123), Molise seventh (981) and Umbria ninth (960). The data "may reflect specific circumstances, for example, the high rate in Valle d'Aosta is, at least in part, attributable to lower taxation of new vehicle registrations". The regions with the lowest motorization rate in Europe are the North East of Romania and Berlin, with less than 400 vehicles per thousand inhabitants.
