The Future Mobility Association has urged a faster buildup of charging infrastructure to keep up with the sharp increase in the number of electric vehicles on Hungarian roads, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The association noted that there were 2,147 public charging stations in Hungary at the end of 2022, some 14% more than a year earlier. During the same period, the number of EVs climbed close to 50%, it added.
The number of fully-electric vehicles in Hungary reached 41,386 at the end of June, while the total number of vehicles with green number plates stood at over 74,000.
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.
