Car registrations on the rise in December

Car registrations rebound in December. In fact, the last month of the year marks a tailspin that the automotive industry needed: a total of 104,915 cars were sold in Italy, 21% more than in December 2021. This is the fifth consecutive positive sign. Starting from August, in fact, monthly registrations have always been higher than in 2021. A result which, however, must be relativized: compared to 2019, the last pre-pandemic year, a drop of 25.3% was recorded in December and in the year by 31.3%

Furthermore, the recovery was not enough to bring the budget into balance with respect to the previous year. In 2o22 there were 1,316,702 registrations in Italy, a decrease of 9.7% compared to those of 2021. 2022 is therefore confirmed as one of the worst years in the last half century as regards the car industry . Indeed, the Centro Studi Promotor highlights that the annual result is only 0.9% higher than in 2013, when the worst result since 1978 was recorded.

The change of course

The improvement in the supply of microchips and other essential components for cars has certainly contributed to reversing the trend in registrations. For the return to much more relevant figures, however, we will have to wait a little longer. “In this context – observes Gian Primo Quagliano, president of the Centro Studi Promotor – the recovery of registrations must also be supported by public incentives as, moreover, has happened in recent years”.

The 630 million allocated to the new incentives starting on January 10, however, are not enough for Promotor. “It is desirable that the provision be modified to make the incentives for electric cars affordable even for motorists with limited spending power and to make an effective and significant contribution to the elimination of older and more polluting cars”.

Stellantis loses altitude

In the Italian panorama, Stellantis’ difficulties are more acute. In fact, the group’s registrations in our country totaled 461,178 cars, down by 15.9% compared to 2021. The market share was down, down to 35.1% compared to 37.8% in one year does.

A timid positive sign came for Stellantis from registrations in December, at least in absolute numbers: there were 32,420, 2.3% more than in the same month of 2021. However, the share also fell by isolating December, from 36.6% at 31.2%
