According to statistics, more cars with an alternative drive were registered in Austria in August than pure diesel or gasoline vehicles. The share of cars with electric or hybrid drives was 42.2 percent and thus for the first time ahead of conventional drive forms petrol with 35.1 percent or diesel with 22.7 percent, said Statistics Austria General Director Tobias Thomas on Thursday.
The alternative drives would have more than doubled their share of new registrations within one year. The declines in gasoline and diesel cars are correspondingly clear. Overall, the number of registered cars was more than 15 percent below August 2020. (dpa / swi)
