Used car market and radiation, the budget for 2017

End of year contrasted for the used car market. In December, the transfers of ownership of the four wheels without the minivolture (temporary transfers in the name of the dealer pending resale to the final customer) recorded a growth of 9.3% in terms of daily average compared to the corresponding month of 2016, which however turns into a 3.1% decrease in terms of the monthly budget due to the presence in December 2017 of two working days less. The decline of the transfers of motorcycles is still more marked, which, again net of minivolves, closed the last month of the year with a negative monthly variation of 13.5% compared to December 2016 (- 3.9% in terms of daily average).

For every 100 new cars, 174 used were sold in December and 148 for the whole of 2017. Overall, in 2017, changes in net ownership showed increases of 4.7% for passenger cars, 0.9% for motorcycles and 3.4% for all vehicles.

The data are reported in the last monthly “Auto-Trend” bulletin, the statistical analysis carried out by the Automobile Club d'Italia on the data of the PRAavailable on the website www.aci.it

Significantly positive signals, on the other hand, for the monthly radiation balance, both in the vehicles and motorcycles. Compared to December 2016 the four-wheel radiation in the last month of 2017 showed a positive variation of 5.2% (+ 16.8% in terms of daily average)while the radiations of motorcycles scored a monthly increase of 21.1% (+ 34.5% in terms of daily average). [19659008] The unit replacement rate in December was 0.96 (for every 100 cars registered, 96 were removed) and 0.71 for the whole of 2017. Overall in 2017, car radiation increased by 2. , 8%, as well as those of all vehicles, against a 2.5% decline in the motorcycles sector. Considering the positive balance for cars between first registrations and radiation – about 583,000 units – a new increase in the number of vehicles in circulation at 31-12-2017 is expected of over 1.5%
