Mobility Sweden Revise Projected Running Total for Commercial Vehicles in 2022
Although shortages of parts continue to affect the industry, this April proved a stronger month than the previous April, which saw a lack of registrations due to the Bonus Malus incentive encouraging drivers to make purchases in March instead. For the first four months, the market fell by 29% compared to the first four months of 2021.
478 heavy vehicles were registered in April, making for a 9% decline on the previous April. With a running total for the first four months of 2022 standing at 1,614 registrations, this amounts to a 15% decrease.
Buses also saw a 30% fall with 70 registrations for April. So far this year, there have been 181 buses registered, which is 31% below 2021 levels.
Sofia Linder, chief economist for Mobility Sweden has confirmed a revised projected target for light commercial vehicles with a new total of 40,000 against 44,000 at the start of the year, partly due to external factors continuing to affect market confidence.
