There were over 76,000 vehicles registered in Hungary with green number plates in July, up 21,000 from a year earlier, the Energy Affairs Ministry said on Thursday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

The green number plates, launched late in 2015, are for fully electric vehicles as well as plug-in, full and range-extender hybrids, depending on the distance they can travel using batteries.

Fully-electric vehicles accounted for over half of the green number plates in July, the ministry said.

At the end of last year, there were 2,147 public EV charging stations in Hungary, the ministry noted.
