Automobiles produced by an employee: 7 cars the EU average, three in Romania, 16 in Spain

About 2.3 million Europeans work directly in the auto industry, and each employee produces on average 7.11 cars year in the EU. The average in Romania is of 2.92 cars/year per employee and the leader in the European Union is Spain with 16.48 cars/year per employee, European Auto Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) informs.

Countries with tradition in the automotive industry, such as Germany and Italy, are below the EU average, hotnews.ro reports.

On the other hand, in countries having newly built factories, such as Slovenia, Slovakia and Spain, the average number of cars produced annually per employee is very high.

In the newest factories or the ones heavily upgraded – the best example is Spain – a small number of people produce more cars as they are helped by robots. On the other hand, fewer people have jobs in the auto industry.

In Germany and Italy, where trade unions are powerful, the number of cars produced per employee is below the EU average per employee, as there was always a fierce battle between keeping people employed in factories and replace them with robots, the same source reads.

Although the above data were published in 2017, they have as reference the production in 2013.

Germany remains the leader in Europe when it comes to the total number of cars produced.

Germany is followed at a great distance by Spain, Britain and France, and Romania is near the middle of the rankings.
