I think these figures need to be viewed in context with the global economic situation though. EU car production is down by more than 6% for instance compared with 2011, but that doesn't mean folks are switching to bicycles instead. I think given the financial ability, most households would choose to have both technologies, but with mobile units being cool, folks would rather ruin their eyesight staring at one of these if it comes down to a choice between the two.
