Registration of buses - DECEMBER 2023

We present you the registrations figures for BUSES in DECEMBER 2023 Data are based on Central Register of Vehicles (CEP).

New buses JANUARY (+134.4% y/y)

In January 2024, 150 new buses were registered in Poland, i.e. an increase of 86 units over the previous year (+134.4% y/y). This is a good prognosis for the future, but we must bear in mind that the beginning of last year was difficult for the whole market and only the following months brought a great final result, i.e. 1 821 registrations. What is important, however, is the fact that we have recorded positive figures in all functional segments (apart from the niche category of school buses), which in our opinion signals a continuation of the bus boom. Above all, the growth among intercity and tourist buses was encouraging.

PZPM - V Debate on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the PZPM

Electric cars are not yet ecological motoring. To talk about such a thing, we need, first of all, ecological car production. And there is no turning back from this. What's more, the path towards it has already been marked. The only question is whether it is winding and bumpy or does it resemble an even and straight highway? Agnieszka Olenderek, Member of the Management Board of Volkswagen Poznań, and Jakub Faryś, President of PZPM, talk about this, and Ernest Bodziuch.

PZPM - IV Debate on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the PZPM

We invite you to watch the recording of the recent debate on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Polish Automotive Industry Association, with participation of Dr Jacek Pawlak President of Toyota Central Europe - Poland and Jacek Nowakowski Alternative Drives Director at IVECO. The debate was chaired by editor Ernest Bodziuch.
The future will belong to hydrogen. And it's not just about hydrogen as a fuel to power electric cars. Hydrogen can contribute to the next great revolution of the global economy. And Poland has the opportunity to play a significant role here. This is discussed in the latest debate on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of PZPM

PZPM - III Debate on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the PZPM

Autonomous and electric-only? Will these be the cars of the future? It is no secret that the European Union wishes to drive the automotive industry towards zero-emission. What is more important, however, is at what stage are car manufacturers and are they able to meet the EU guidelines. This is what Marcin Kwoka of Mercedes-Benz Poland and Łukasz Paździor of Mazda Motor Poland are discussing in the latest debate on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the PZPM, and Ernest Bodziuch invites you.

Automotive Industry, Quarterly report prepared by PZPM and KPMG, edition Q1 2024

In 2023, 475,000 new passenger cars were registered in Poland - 13.2% more than in 2022.
Better sales results were also recorded in vans, trucks, buses and motorbikes. Last year, sales of alternative-fuel passenger cars totalled 217,600 units, up 35.4% on the previous year. This is not only a result of changing consumer preferences, but also an opportunity for manufacturers and suppliers to adjust their offers even more to the growing interest of ecological solutions. According to a report by PZPM and KPMG in Poland "Automotive industry, Q1/2024 edition", the previous year was also a better one for automotive factories in Poland, which produced 612.9 thousand vehicles - 26.7% more than in 2022.

PZPM Automotive Industry Report 2023/2024

The Automotive Industry Report 2023/24, which we provide in the link below the news, is a compendium of knowledge on the broadly understood automotive industry in Poland and Europe. In the current edition of the PZPM yearbook, we present an analysis of the park of all types of vehicles, first registrations, and automotive production, as well as issues related to transport, fleet operations, fuel sales, tyre production, and road infrastructure.
In the Report, you will also find expert studies prepared by our regular Partners on the most crucial issues of key importance to the industry - including environmental, fiscal, macroeconomic, and legal issues, as well as a discussion of support systems for the automotive industry using EU and national state aid funds. The studies consider the impact of, among other things, legislation and the current socio-political situation on the Polish and European automotive sector and its environment. In the publication, no information on the latest developments in the automotive industry - alternative drives and the associated charging infrastructure, as well as autonomous and connected vehicles - could be missing.

In a foreword, PZPM President Jakub Faryś said: "We have undoubtedly come to live in interesting times of automotive revolution. A sector that has recently had to overcome the crisis caused by a pandemic, the disruption of semiconductor supplies, and the war in Ukraine has also been confronted with the need to meet very ambitious emissions targets and, in the not-too-distant future, to change powertrains" and the just-appointed ACEA Director General, Sigrid de Vries , emphasized, "In the turbulent times in which we live, fact-based decision-making is becoming increasingly important. That is why the European Automobile Manufacturers' Association (ACEA) wants to be the main reliable source of data on our sector in order to support fact-based decision-making on the future of automotive and the European industry."

The Report is published since 2007 on the initiative of the Polish Automotive Industry Association edited by Robert Przybylski. The co-authors of the latest issue are CMS Cameron McKenna, KPMG in Poland, Martini & Co., SSW Pragmatic Solutions, PZPO, ZDG TOR.
