Road vehicles in 2019: stock and new registrations Electric cars gain momentum: number of new registrations more than doubled in 2019
Number of new vehicle registrations in 2022 almost 8% lower than previous year
31.01.2020 - In 2019, 6 160 300 motor vehicles circulated on Swiss roads. This was 46 500 or 0.8% more than in the previous year. Three quarters of the entire fleet were passenger cars, including an increasing number of electric cars: of the 312 900 cars that were newly registered in 2019, 13 200 or 4.2% were purely battery operated. This meant that new registrations of electric cars increased substantially year-on-year (+143.9%) while the number of petrol-driven cars only showed a slight increase (+1.9%) and diesel cars once again saw a clear decline (–11.9%). These findings are from the Federal Statistical Office's (FSO) newly published Road Motor Vehicle Statistics.
