Licensing and Vehicle Ownership, 2011
The latest National Statistics on Licensing and vehicle ownership produced by the Welsh Assembly Government were released on 28August 2011 according to the arrangements approved by the UK Statistics Authority.
The key points from the latest release are:
- During 2011 there were 85 thousand new registrations in Wales, and just under 4 out of 5 of these, 68 thousand, were cars.
- At the end of 2011 there was a stock of 1.742 million vehicles licensed for use on the roads in Wales. Just over three quarters, around 1.321 million, of these were cars. The vehicles licensed in Wales came to around 5 per cent of the total licensed for Great Britain as a whole.
- The level of the vehicle stock in Wales means that there were 478 cars licensed for every thousand people in Wales at the end of 2011; in addition there were 18 motorcycles, 57 light goods vehicles and 7 heavy goods vehicles licensed for every thousand people.
- During 2011, the average CO2 emissions from a car registered during the year were 17 per cent lower compared with the average CO2 emissions from cars registered five years earlier, in 2006. Comparing all the cars registered at the end of 2011 with all those registered at the end of 2006 shows that the average CO2 emissions across the stock of cars as a whole fell by 5 per cent.
- At the end of 2011 there were 715 thousand diesel powered vehicles in Wales, 41 per cent of the total. There were 1,019 thousand petrol powered vehicles, 58½ per cent of the total. The remaining ½ per cent of the vehicles in Wales, 9 thousand vehicles, was powered by alternative fuels (that is by electric, hybrid, natural gas and so on). Of these 3,200 were electric powered, around 500 higher than at the end of 2010.
