The second-hand market crowns diesel.  Here are all the numbers

TURIN – The revenge of diesel passes through the second-hand market. If on the new front, diesel continues to lose ground as an engine, in the second-hand segment it takes first place on the podium as the most popular car. The data comes from Unrae, the association of foreign manufacturers, which will now also periodically evaluate the trend of used cars in Italy on a monthly basis. Car ownership transfers decreased by 9.9% in the first 3 months of this year, reaching 1,157,343 units compared to 1,285,041 in the same period of 2021. If net transfers lose more than 11%, the minivoltures, those between private individuals and dealers or retailers, recorded a contraction of 8.2%.

The share of cooler cars decreased, especially those from 1 to 2 years (to 12.6%), due to the reduction in Km0. With a new market that has long lead times for deliveries, from at least six months to a year and a half, used cars have become the only alternative to change vehicles.

Dynamics that also affects the prices of cars. 35% of ownership transfers in the quarter took place in Lombardy, Lazio and Campania. All the Italian regions decreased compared to the same period of 2021, with the exception of Trentino Alto Adige which managed to achieve stability, thanks to the transfers of used cars from operators.
