Eastern Europe shifts second gear

Abstract

The paper describes the recent development in the personal car ownership within the European Union. It stems from the key factors influencing its fluctuations (population, GDP, fleet renewal), which also represent important socio-economic differences between the EU countries. The subsequent part analyses the comparison of the total car parc and of the new personal carc sales and offers the potential prospects of the further development of both indicators in the twelve new EU members.
