Over 10,000 have been registered this year – the highest so far.

In all nearly 4% of new car registrations are for electric cars. One of the highest in the world.

But there are 6 million cars in the country and still half of new registrations are for SUVs. The continuing popularity of big cars is being blamed for rising CO2 emissions as well as the declining use of diesels after the fuel emissions scandal, according to the Federal Energy Office.
