Figures for scrapped vehicles in Poland for 2019 showed a 7% decrease from the previous year
According to IBRM Samar, statistics from the Central Register of Vehicles and Drivers (CEPiK), shows that approximately 540,000 vehicles were deregistered and due to be dismantled in 2019.
Nearly 1.5 million passenger cars were registered to be on Polish roads, of which over 550,000 of these were brand new. Almost 540,000 were deregistered from CEPiK, with nearly 90% (468,882) of them dismantled. This number is 7.0% lower than in 2018.
75% of these dismantled cars were equipped with petrol or diesel engines.
The data from CEPiK also showed that 60% of these dismantled in 2019 were imported.
Since Poland became a member state of the European Union in 2004, it comes as no surprise that older vehicles, mainly from German Manufacturers, such as VWs and Opel, were imported into Poland.
