Steady growth of electric vehicles in Hungary, MEKH reports

According to the data from the Hungarian Energy and Public Utility Regulatory Authority (MEKH), the number of publicly available electric chargers in Hungary increased by 33.6 per cent by the end of 2021 compared to the previous year. By using these chargers, 10,907 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity was charged into electric cars in 2021, 3,942 MWh more than in 2020.

The authority’s latest e-mobility report indicates that the increase in the number of charging stations is unbroken and expansion can be observed almost all over the country. The largest increase was found in Vas, Heves and Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok counties. As regards the number of stations, Budapest continues to be the leader with 673 stations, followed by Pest county with 233 chargers.

The number of fully electric passengers rose by 21 per cent compared to the previous quarter, while cars with green license plates reached an increase of 14 per cent in the same period.

The expansion of chargers and the number of electric vehicles led to a significant increase also to the number of direct (DC) and alternating current (AC) charges.
