Passenger car ownership, which is closely connected to the use of passenger cars, strongly increased in Slovenia in last 20 years (it has almost doubled). Since 2008 passenger car ownership in Slovenia does not grow any longer as a result of the economic recession. Motorization level, which is reflected in the number of cars per thousand inhabitants, in Slovenia exceeds the rate of motorization in numerous economically more developed EU countries.


The indicator shows development of the motorisation level in Slovenia and in EU countries.

The passenger car ownership or motorisation level is regularly expressed as the number of passenger cars per 1000 residents (EEA, 2006). Road motor vehicle, other than a motorcycle, intended for the carriage of passengers and designed to seat no more than nine persons (including the driver). The number of passenger cars is defined as vehicles, which were registered in the country on a specific day and may use the roads open for public transport (SORS, 2004).

Vehicle ownership is expressed in number of vehicles per 1 000 inhabitants. Freight transport intensity is expressed in number of heavy duty trucks per million Euro of GDP. Dieselisation is expressed in percentage of diesel vehicles in the entire passenger car fleet.

The share of diesel cars in the entire passenger car fleet is defined as number of diesel vehicles per total number of passenger cars.

Freight transport intensity is defined as number of vehicles per unit of GDP specified by freight transport mode (road, rail, inland, maritime).

Goals

In Slovenia as well as in the EU and its Member States, objectives or target values regarding car ownership are not set clearly. Countries consider car ownership in different ways – in the Scandinavian countries public transport presents a way of sustainable everyday mobility. For this reason passenger cars are a subject of higher tax.
