Country comparison (2021)

See how the different countries compare on the characteristics of the vehicle fleet and infrastructure rollout.

The reference year for the graphs and maps on this page is 2021. Since 2021  CNG, LNG and LPG vehicle and infrastructure data are not yet available, these are extrapolated on the basis of historic data and evolutions.
