It pegs the 2019 number of vehicles in operation (VIO) at 32,396,756.

The 125-page TecAlliance 2020 Automotive Report offers unique market insights about global VIO data, comparing countries within six regions around the world.

Based in Maastricht, Netherlands, the project employs dozens of data specialists, data analysts, data-staging engineers, developers and data scientists.
