According to the Hong Kong Department of Transport (HKDT), vehicle sales for the first four months of 2014 came in at 15,040 units, an increase of 6.1% year-on-year (y-o-y). This figure consists of new private car registrations, new goods vehicle registrations and new private light bus registrations.
In line with our view, the expansion of subsidies to replace older pre-Euro IV commercial vehicles (CVs), which are contributing to the city's pollution, continues to have limited impact, due to affordability issues (see 'Subsidy Indifference To Hit CV Sales', March 25). The Hong Kong government aims to replace roughly 80,000 pre-Euro IV CVs (including franchised buses) by 2019, which will entail average CV sales of over 14,000 units annually from now until 2019. However, with current annual CV sales at half that level, the government will fall short of its initial target.
