Growing urbanization coupled with increasing demand for mobility and personal motorization remains as one of the key challenges in Asian cities.

Growing urbanization coupled with increasing demand for mobility and personal motorization remains as one of the key challenges in Asian cities. With the advent of cheaper and smaller cars like the Nanos in India, it is expected that motorization will continue to increase at an unprecedented rate. Most people in Asian cities have an increasing propensity to use light-duty vehicles (i.e. cars) and motorcycles as their main mode of daily commute because most public transport systems in Asian cities have very low levels of service, that is, unintegrated, unreliable, uncomfortable, and old.

The graphs have been generated from the draft ADB study "Transportation and CO2 Emissions Folding Them into a Unified View for Forecasts, Options Analysis, and Evaluation"

The graphs should be sourced to "ADB, CAI-Asia – 2008"

Motorization trends for India, Indonesia, PRC, Philippines, Thailand, and Viet Nam were provided by Segment Y Ltd.
