Key assessment

The average age of passenger cars in the EEA varies widely between countries. The lowest average age for the year 2004 was observed in Luxembourg (3 years), highest in Greece (13 years). The high average age of passenger cars in Greece relates to the general economic conditions. Data series on non-EU15 countries are only available for Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Norway, Slovenia and Poland (see Figure 1).
