Ireland has one of the lowest rates of car ownership in the European Union.

New figures from Eurostat show we had 440 passenger cars for every one thousand inhabitants in 2017 - the 8th lowest figure in the EU.

Despite this, Ireland recorded the highest rate of cars less than two years old in 2017.

Grace Bolton of the European Commission office in Ireland says Luxembourg tops the charts for car ownership in the EU.
