Luxembourg is the 65th-placed country in ranking of 137 countries based on number of vehicle registrations.

A very useful variable for estimating the level of economic wealth enjoyed by Luxembourgers residents, when compared to the other countries in the ranking, is the number of vehicles sold or registered per thousand residents in the last year. With annual sales of 71.86 cars per 1,000 residents, 5.3 of them in the last month, Luxembourg, occupies pole position, which tells us that its population enjoys a high standard of living.

As can be seen, the number of registrations per thousand residents has fallen in the last year. A drop in registrations generally indicates a fall in consumer confidence and, when it is sustained, a recession in the real economy.

Changes in Luxembourg vehicle registration numbers are shown in the tables below. As several studies indicate, these changes are very much related to changes in GDP and, hence, to a country's economic situation. Sales have declined since 2012, as 55,049 were registered that year, as have the number of registrations per thousand residents, which that year numbered 102.5.
