Number of cars on the road in the United Kingdom (UK) between 2000 and 2016 (in millions)

Number of cars on the road in the United Kingdom (UK), 2000-2016 This statistic detail the total number of cars on the road in the United Kingdom (UK) between 2000 and 2016, including projections for 2015 and 2016. It can be seen that the number of cars in the UK was still growing and that there was a large market, however, the average age of cars in the UK was also increasing which means that less people were buying new cars. This trend is very likely to continue for the next year but will probably start to change after that. Under this assumption and expecting the rise of new cars on the road to continue, the average age of cars on the road in the UK should start to reduce and the proportion of new cars on the road will gradually rise as a result. The number of cars on the road in the UK increased by approximately 3.3 percent from 2009 to 2014 and is projected to increase by another two percent from 2014 to 2016. Overall this would amount to an increase of nearly 1.4 million cars from 2009 to 2016.
