New and used cars, transport vehicles and heavy trucks
The Car Business entails the sale of twenty attractive brands of new and used cars, transport vehicles and trucks. A sale often leads on to financing, insurance, servicing, wheel storage and other services during the ownership period.
Market and business environment
In Sweden and Norway, the number of registered new cars de-creased by 4 and 1 per cent, respectively, compared to the previous year. Disruptions in distribution chains during the year meant a shortage of cars, although supply improved in the latter part of the year.
The Car Business’ deliveries of new cars, transport vehicles and trucks, adjusted for acquired and divested operations, decreased by 9 per cent. Deliveries of used cars decreased by 16 per cent compared to the previous year. For the third year in a row, Bilia sold more used cars than new cars. Demand for new and used cars varied during the year and was adversely affected by the geopolitical and economic uncertainty in the latter part of the year.
The order intake for new cars, adjusted for acquired and divested operations, decreased by 16 per cent. The order backlog was the highest ever at a year-end, amounting to 26,325 cars, compared to 22,775 cars in the previous year. The increase can partly be attributed to a shortage of new cars from car manufacturers. In Sweden and Norway, demand for rechargeable cars continued to increase, primarily explained by tax systems to achieve the UN’s 17 global Sustainable Development Goals.
