Rewrite this content

Since the mid-2000s, the average age of the Hungarian car fleet has been gradually increasing. The best results were achieved in 2006 and 2007, when the average age of the car fleet was just over 10.3 years. However, a decade later – in 2017 – he was over fourteen years old. The latest data is from 2021, when Hungarian cars were 15 years old. (The data for 2022 will only be made public later.) Totalcar asked the KSH for detailed data on how the 15-year average is compiled, i.e. in which age group, how many and what brand of car it belongs to, the results speak for themselves.

Before last year, there were officially just over 4 million (4,020,159 units) cars in circulation. The proportion of children under the age of five was 16 percent, i.e. 644 thousand people belonged to this group. In the next group are the 6-15 year olds, this is simply true for every third car, as it is a group of 1.4 million. The oldest category, over 16, is the most populous, with almost 2 million, they account for 48 percent of the entire fleet.
