Almost half of the automobiles that are registered in Georgia were manufactured before 1999

Georgia has the most outdated civilian fleet of vehicles in Eastern Europe, a study by Galt & Taggart shows. 

The number of cars in the country is growing every year, but the average age of vehicles is not declining.

The number of new cars – defined as produced not more than four years ago – is less than two percent of the total number, and old vehicles – which came off the assembly line in 1999 or earlier – make up 45.5 per cent of all vehicles in the country.

According to the study, the average age of a vehicle in Georgia in 2017 was 20.3 years. In Ukraine, this figure was 19.6 years, in Poland -17.3 years, in Romania – 16.2, in Lithuania – 15.5, in Russia – 13.1.
