How many cars are there in the world? [Random Knowledge #30]
posted March 24 2013 21:53.20 by Giorgos Lazaridis




In 2012, there were a total of 1.1 billion cars running on the streets around the world! USA holds the record with 250 million cars, and China follows with 100 million cars.

Bonus facts:
Each year, 2.2 billion tires are consumed, averaging 2 tires per car annually. Half of the world's production of rubber is consumed for these tires.

1.73 billion tons of carbon dioxide is generated by these cars every year. Transportation holds the #1 position in the chart of the greenhouse gas sources.

Back in 2004, there were about 700 million cars in the whole world. In 2000, there were about 1/4 (400 million cars).

OECD's International Transport Forum forecast that the number of cars worldwide would reach 2.5 billion by 2050. These cars will consume 150 million barrels of oil per day!

Strangely, the automotive industry increases their production of cars every year, even during the years of the economical crisis in US and EU...

World vehicle production reached 84.1 million in 2012
World auto production reached 80.1 million in 2011
Global Production of Auto mobiles Increases by 6 Percent
