ERJ staff report (DS)
Brussels. ACEA, the federation of European vehicle manufacturers, has issued figures for truck registrations for the year to December 2007. The organisation said, "In 2007, the demand for new commercial vehicles in Europe was overall 6.8% higher than last year. The European market ended the year with 7.2% more vans, 5.1% more trucks* and 4.4% more buses & coaches registered. The steady upward trend recorded throughout the year thanks to a healthy and dynamic European and foreign demand in the sector weakened somewhat in December. Van and bus & coach registrations went up by 1.3% and 43.3%, respectively, but the truck* market slightly declined (-1.6%)."
