Number of cars per household in the United Kingdom (UK), 2014-2015

This statistic illustrates the number of cars per household in the in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2014 and 2015. The survey was conducted with more than 4,000 respondents of the age of 17 or older during June 2014 and March 2015. For both years, the majority of respondents stated that their is only one car in their household. The number of households with only one car increased from 2014 to 2015 from 44 percent to 45 percent. The same development is noticeable in the next two categories, "households with two cars" and "households with three or more cars". In both categories an increasing share of respondents answered the question. As a result of this development, the share of respondents who answered the question with "none" cars in their household, declined from 31 percent of the respondents in 2014 to 24 percent of respondents in 2015.
