PASSENGER CARS IN THE EU [2 February 2015]
Data from July 2014. Most recent data: Further Eurostat information, Main tables and Database.
Despite an increase between 2010 and 2012, passenger cars powered by alternative fuels, including hybrid cars, only made up a small share of the fleet of passenger cars in the EU in 2012. Also among newly registered passenger cars, the share of cars powered by alternative fuels was low.
Overall, the passenger car fleet in most of the EU Member States has grown over the last five years. The highest number of cars per inhabitant was recorded in Luxembourg, Italy and Malta. Lithuania, Latvia and Poland had the highest shares of old passenger cars in 2012.
Preferences with regards to petrol or diesel powered passenger cars vary across the EU Member States; amongst the Member States for which recent data are available, cars with petrol powered engines make up the majority of registered passenger cars in most of the countries; diesel powered passenger cars dominate in only four Member States. When looking at petrol and diesel engines together, the medium sized engines dominated the passenger car fleet in most EU Member States; however, in Malta, Hungary, Portugal and Romania the smallest engines dominated.
