Number of motorcycles and cars registered in Great Britain (UK) 2000-2018 Cars saw the greatest increase in registration figures in Great Britain, growing by 11 percent between 2000 and 2018 compared with a 0.67 percent rise in motorcycles numbers. Motor vehicle ownership was highest in Northern Ireland, with 82 percent of respondents of a 2017 survey reporting they possessed a car or different type of motor vehicle.
 Most UK households own one car

A different survey from 2018 on the number of cars owned per car owning household found that 37 percent of UK motorists lived in a household with access to two cars, as opposed to 53 percent possessing one car.

 Increased uptake of ultra-low emission vehicles

  Following greater introduction of electric vehicles and discussions surrounding higher emission standards, the number of licensed ultra-low emission vehicles has been rising significantly. In the past eight years it has grown from 11,222 units to nearly 185,470. This increase particularly started to pick up following the diesel scandal.
