3.3.3. Evolution of the vehicle fleet
In 2007 the country had a fleet of 25,806,813 vehicles, including passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, trucks and buses. The growth registered from 2000 until December 2007 was 2.9% per annum, the percentage also used in EPE forecasts. For transportation, a slow transition from fossil fuels to biofuels is projected, remembering, however, that biofuels' accelerated production for energy purposes can become a further social problem, because of the privileges granted to plantations. Brazil and its fostering programs in the area have already demonstrated the viability of the large-scale production of ethanol and biodiesel. The new fleets in production must be adapted, and it is necessary to have the costs reduced to make their use more attractive.
