Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to you because I found some very big discrepancies in the average age of the car passenger fleet, between your data ([…]/average-age-of-the-vehicle-8) and the data presented by ACEA ([…]/average-vehicle-age). For example, you stated that the averae car age of Poland is 5.75, while the European agency says that is 17.5.

Is there any reason for this?

Many thanks in advanced for your help.

Kind regards,

Discrepancies in the average age of the passenger car fleet occur because of data sources. EEA uses EC4MACS data because its consistency and completion, whereas ACEA (using data from ANFAC) provides limited data for some MS only (and not for all vehicle categories). Every year we investigate the data sources and discuss how the data quality can be improved – we will come back to this exercise in autumn, when a new assessment of this indicator is planned to be published.
Kind regards.
