Data published last week by the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) show that at the end of 2009 the number of motor vehicles in Israel was 2,458,700 of which 1,946,700 were private cars.
 
In Israel there are 350,000 trucks, 110,000 motorcycles, 18,600 taxis, 14,100 buses and 15,300 minibuses.
 
According to the study, 39.1% of all vehicles in Israel were manufactured in Japan. Japan has been leading the list of vehicle manufacturing countries since the Central Bureau of Statistics began tracking vehicle origins in 2003.
 
Following Japan are Korea (11.3%), Spain (8.7%), France (8.5%), Germany (7.1%) and Italy and the United States, each representing 3.6% of vehicles in Israel.
 
In 2009, 236,500 new vehicles were added to Israel’s roads, worth approximately US$2 billion,  and 168,300 were removed, working out to an increase of 2.9% compared to 2008.
 
The study showed that of the new cars added in 2009, the most popular make, making up 18.7%, was Japanese manufacturer Mazda. Other popular manufacturers were Hyundai (12.2%), Toyota (11.3%), Chevrolet (6.7%), Ford (6.5%), Honda, Nissan, Volkswagen and Suzuki.
 
With a population of roughly seven million people, the ratio works out to 326 vehicles per 1,000 people, placing Israel substantially below other developed countries. The United States, which leads the ranking of vehicles per population, has more than 800 vehicles per 1,000 people. Japan has roughly 600 and Denmark 500.
