AFTER 2020 BOOM IN REGISTRATIONS. SAD LEADER IN SOUTH ITALY FOR EURO ZERO VEHICLES
After the economic crisis triggered by the pandemic, 2021 was supposed to be the year of recovery in the transport sector and on this point many have wondered whether this recovery actually took place because apparently many did not realize it. Let us, however, try to answer this question by rattling off a few figures.
The Observatory on the macrotrends of heavy transport carried out by Continental found through the analysis of data on registrations that the heavy vehicle sector closed 2021 with 24,168 registrations, up 23.2% compared to 2020. Almost all the Italian regions follow a fairly positive trend: first of all the Aosta Valley which has the highest percentage ever (+ 164.7%), while Veneto stands at a shy + 4.9%. The region, on the other hand, where the scenario is contrasting is Sicily, which, together with 10 other regions, closes 2021 with a minus sign. The Sicilian region is, in fact, the most emblematic of this sad record, which splits Italy in two, almost halving the figure, going from 194 to 112 vehicles registered with a significant loss of - 42.3%. The percentage recorded in Italy is much higher than the average recorded in the EU, where registrations increased by an average of 21.2% compared to 2020.
Unfortunately, the negative data that worries operators in the sector is the still constant presence of Euro 0 vehicles on our roads, that is, we are talking about vehicles registered before 31 December 1992; in essence they are therefore polluting vehicles, which use leaded fuels and do not have any exhaust gas filtering system. This situation is worrying to say the least, especially in Southern Italy, which boasts this sad record.
