This map represents the number of NGV vehicles and stations across European countries (E.U 27) in 2019.
The weight of natural gas in the mobility sector varies significantly between the different European countries. Italy (1,449 stations) and Germany (861 stations) dominate the European market, while countries such as Ireland or Romania have a recent development that is struggling to take off. Some European countries have implemented policies that are very favorable to the NGV industry. Indeed, France and Germany have an advantageous tax system for NGV vehicles. Since January 1, 2019, NGV vehicles over 7.5 tons are exempt from motorway tolls corresponding to the tax on air pollution. A multitude of European countries have significantly increased the number of their installations during the year 2019. This is the case, among others, in France (+55 stations), Spain (+62) or Italy (+187).
