Total number of vehicles in India 2005-2016

Total number of vehicles across India from 2005 to 2016 (in millions)

by Statista Research Department, last edited May 8, 2019
Total number of vehicles in India 2005-2016 In a country with the third largest road network in the world, the total number of vehicles in the year 2016 stood at 230 million. Road travel seemed to be the preferred choice in India with over 60 percent of the population who used personal or shared vehicles for commute. Not only public commute, the industrial movement of goods through roads had also been on the rise with over two billion metric tons of freight transported through roads in 2016.
Vehicles of young Indians

The youth in the capital city of Delhi preferred to use public transport with over 40 and known to be best one of the best public networks in the country in 2018. In the southern cities of Hyderabad and Chennai however, personal two-wheelers were vehicles of choice for the young generation. This affection towards the easily-navigable two-wheelers was reflected in the sales volume, with an approximate 19 million two-wheelers sold in the country in 2016.

It isn’t all good

With the increase of motor bike sales in India, there was also a rise in the risks involved with them. With over 150 thousand road accidents in 2017, people using two-wheelers were most of the victims. Despite the downside, the number of motorcycles was likely to increase to make travelling within a mercilessly congested and not easily accessible network of roads within the large cities. Moreover, with continued urbanization and a consumer sector that continues to burgeon, the development of the automotive industry was expected to see continued growth.
