Total number of vehicles in use in Belgium 2008-2018 Between the period of 2008 to 2018, the number of vehicles on the road in Belgium increased steadily. In 2008, the volume of vehicles amounted to approximately 6.5 million, whereas by 2018 it increased to a total of roughly 7.53 million. This is an increase of over one million vehicles in the given time period. From the total volume of vehicles on the road, the number of electric passenger cars grew year-on-year. In 2008, ten electric passenger cars were registered and found on the roads in Belgium, whereas by 2018 this increased to approximately 9,240 passenger cars with an electric engine.

Total volume of registered vehicles

Observing the number of registered new vehicles, the volume fluctuated between 2008 and 2013, before increasing from 2014 onwards. As of 2017, 673,336 new vehicles were registered in Belgium, resulting in the highest number of newly registered vehicles between the period of 2008 to 2017. Furthermore, most of the new vehicle registrations were passenger cars. As of 2017, the total volume of new passenger cars amounted to 553,692, one of the highest registered volumes in the period between 2007 and 2017.

Monthly costs of driving a car

Even though the electric passenger cars do not require any crude oil, it costs individuals in Belgium 857 euros a month to drive one in 2018. This was the highest monthly expenditure compared to other fuel typed cars (costs including insurances, taxes, depreciation and maintenance). Driving gas fueled cars cost Belgians 780 euros per month, whereas diesel was the least expensive with 688 euros.
