Purpose and brief description

This statistic provides an overview of all vehicles motorized in Belgium that were registered with the Vehicle Registration Department (D.I.V.) of the FPS Mobility in a certain period.

Population

Registration of motor vehicles.

Frequency

Monthly

Timing of publication

Results available 15 days after the reference period.

Definitions

Types de véhicule : voitures de tourisme, autobus et autocars, camions, tracteurs routiers, tracteurs agricoles, les véhicules spéciaux, les motocycles.

Véhicules utilitaires pour le transport de marchandises : camions, camionnettes, tous terrains, camions-citernes.

Type de carburant : essence, diesel, gaz, électricité.

Les tracteurs sont des véhicules motorisés utilitaires auxquels sont attelés des semi-remorques (véhicule sans essieu avant).

Les véhicules spéciaux sont des véhicules lents dont les dimensions ou le poids excèdent les valeurs maximales normalement admises pour effectuer un transport de marchandises. La masse maximale autorisée en Belgique ne doit pas dépasser 44 tonnes. Les véhicules de cette catégorie ne peuvent donc circuler sur la voie publique que dans des conditions très strictes.

Tous les motocycles roulant à plus de 40 km/h, soit toutes les motocyclettes et la plupart des vélomoteurs.

Remarks

Le grand nombre d’immatriculations de tracteurs agricoles d’occasion en 2013 est dû à la réimmatriculation avec les plaques G rouges.
