An annual report which includes information on the numbers and the characteristics of the vehicles licensed for use on the roads for the first time.
- During 2012 there were over 90 thousand new registrations in Wales, and 4 out of 5 of these, 72 thousand, were cars.
- At the end of 2012 there was a stock of 1.757 million vehicles licensed for use on the roads in Wales. Just over three quarters, 1.332 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 480 cars licensed for every thousand people in Wales at the end of 2012; in addition there were 18 motorcycles, 58 light goods vehicles and 7 heavy goods vehicles for every thousand people.
- During 2012, the average CO2 emissions from a car registered during the year were 18 per cent lower compared with the average CO2 emissions from cars registered five years earlier, in 2007. Comparing all the cars registered at the end of 2012 with all those registered at the end of 2007 shows that the average CO2 emissions across the stock of cars as a whole fell by 6 per cent.
- At the end of 2012 there were 751 thousand diesel powered vehicles in Wales, 42.7 per cent of the total. There were 996 thousand petrol powered vehicles, 56.7 per cent of the total. The remaining 0.6 per cent of the vehicles in Wales, 10 thousand vehicles, was powered by alternative fuels (that is by electric, hybrid, natural gas and so on). Of these 3,900 were electric powered, 700 more than at the end of 2011.
