Automobile Industry Pocket Guide 2010-2011
Each year, the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) publishes its Automobile Industry Pocket Guide in order to provide you with a clear and complete overview of one of Europe’s key industries.
The automotive industry is a key element in the fabric of the European economy and society. Our industry contributes enormously to the health and wealth of the EU and its near 500 million inhabitants – it is vital that the automotive sector retains its competitiveness and innovative edge.
The European vehicle manufacturers are technology leaders, driving innovation towards cleaner, safer, sustainable transport. As major corporate citizens, they are fully part of society and, therefore, dialogue and mutual understanding with all our stakeholders is essential. This booklet, the 2010 edition of the ACEA Automobile Industry Pocket Guide, provides comprehensive and insightful facts and figures with key data on employment, production, vehicle registration, vehicle use, taxation and trade, as well as information on a range of environment and mobility-related issues. It also presents the vehicle manufacturers’ trade association in Brussels, ACEA.
