End-of-life vehicles (ELV) show an average age of 19 years in France, according to the latest Ademe report for the year 2018 but what were the top 15 scrapped vehicles?
According to L’argus.fr, the annual report published by Ademe showed that in 2018, 1,571,776 end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) had been taken care of by the 1,647 ATFs in France.
Comparing figures with 2017, dismantlers saw the number of vehicles entering their yards increase by 38%.
The list of the most frequently scrapped models in 2018 gives pride of place to French cars: they are even “over-represented” according to Ademe, which is logical since Renault, Peugeot and Citroën alone represent half of the sales of new vehicles.
With an average age of 19 when they were scrapped, the ELVs of 2018 are in a way the reflection of the new vehicle market … of 1999. The top two vehicles scrapped in 2018 were the Renault Clio II and the Peugeot 206 or the two best sales of the year 1999!
Among the top 15 ELVs, nine of them were the most widely distributed new cars in 1999.
