New registrations

As in previous years, roughly twice as many used cars were registered in 2019 than new cars, according to the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA). Seasonal fluctuations are also discernible, such as the spring revival in the months March to June and a slackening-off in the autumn. While the new car market plateaued during the summer months, the used car market went through some ups and downs. These fluctuations are fairly unusual for the used car market, since it is generally less dependent than the new car market on external factors, economic regulations or political circumstances.
