"they could have bought second hand old small cars at a couple thousand euros... "

Well, those are the upfront costs. But a car is expensive without them: insurance, parking, petrol, repairs. And those last two marginal costs are worse for a second hand car than for a new one (although small is always better indeed).

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
