Charging volume at public EV charging stations in Hungary climbed 45% year-on-year to 4,888 MWh in the second quarter, the Hungarian Energy and Public Utilities Regulatory Office (MEKH) said on Thursday, according to a report by state news wire MTI. The number of charges more than doubled to 437,100 during the period, MEKH said.
There were 2,031 public EV charging stations in Hungary at the end of June, up 25% from a year earlier. The charging stations had 4,094 sockets.
Green number plates have been issued to over 53,000 vehicles registered in Hungary. The plates, launched late in 2015, are for fully electric vehicles as well as plug-in, full and range-extender hybrids, depending on the distance they can travel using batteries.
