The rise in the dollar rate has continued for 15 years. It gained momentum especially after 2018. Today, we feel its effects heavily. Of course, since high taxes also get their share from this increase, the price of almost everything from A to Z is increasing day by day. Among those most affected by this situation is the second-hand car market. Here are the details…
6 out of 10 people who will buy second-hand cars tend to scrap
The world is about to reach a level where it can no longer bear the harm that people will inflict on itself. Many decisions are taken to prevent this situation. Among them is leaving behind vehicles with internal combustion engines. The EU has already mandated electric car conversion by 2030.
The number of electric cars is increasing in Turkey. In fact, according to the latest report, the market share of electric vehicles grew by 179.31 percent. But there is also a realistic side to the work. While the share of electric vehicles in brand new vehicles sold in Northern European countries reached 80 percent, it increased from 0.29 percent to 0.81 percent in our country. So numbers can be deceiving.
On the other hand, most of the people who want to buy a passenger car are turning to the second hand car market. According to the news of Emre Özpeynirci and Erol Şahin, the majority of this market is composed of at least 3-4 cases – generation – previous models.
An important detail that draws attention in this regard is that 30 percent of people who will buy second-hand cars prefer vehicles over the age of 10 and 30 percent prefer vehicles over the age of 20. In other words, the vehicles we encounter in traffic do not even support the Euro 5-6 standard, which represents a relatively low emission rate, let alone being environmentally friendly and electric.
So much so that when we look at the sales percentages of the vehicles in the market, we see that Euro 2 and 3 are more prominent than Euro 5 and 6. Of course, we know that most of these vehicles have crashed many times and even been heavily damaged, that is, pert.
Therefore, although cars with dozens of airbags, safe and autonomous driving assistants, lane and signage tracking, and at least 4 stars in Euro NCAP tests are launched today, most people have given up on ABS and power steering for the moment. looks like condition.
