European countries: motorization rate 2018

Liechtenstein has the highest motorization rate in Europe. In 2018, there were 780 passenger cars per 1,000 people. By comparison, the United Kingdom came in below the EU-28 average, with a motorization rate of 488 cars per 1,000 inhabitants. Considering how small the population is in Liechtenstein, the country's car parc dwarfed by that of more populous counterparts. Germany has the largest number of registered passenger cars in operation in Europe.
