The Automotive Industries Association of Canada has released its first study into the miles driven by Canada’s public.
AIA Canada has partnered with StreetLight Data, a US-based firm that provides big data for mobility across North America to produce the latest report, National Vehicle Kilometres Travelled Metrics – 2019 to 2021.
Using a combination of machine learning and a deep knowledge of the transportation market, the data in this report sheds light on the average kilometers driven by Canadians across the country.
“With this report, AIA Canada aims to provide our members with the knowledge they need to make strategic business decisions. The data gathered will span three key years – 2019 (pre-COVID), 2020 (peak COVID) and 2021 (COVID & beyond), with trend lines based on quarterly figures,” says the association.
Calling it a “novel initiative” and “somewhat experimental” the association is seeking input to drive the methodology and data on an ongoing basis in the future.
The report is free to download by AIA Canada members as well as non-members.
