evcompare.Dublin has the highest number of Electric Vehicle registrations from 2010 to 2013, at 119, followed by Cork , Wicklow and Westmeath.

There are several Counties in which no Electric Vehicles have been registered, such as Donegal, Leitrim, Monaghan and Roscommon. These figures were released by the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Rescources, Deputy Pat Rabbitte, in response to a query made by Deputy John Deasy on the correct number of Vehicles on the road to date.

In his response Deputy Rabbitte told the Dail that the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), which manages the Electric Vehicle grant scheme on behalf of the Government, has had a total of 250 EV grant applications paid to date. This figure does  not include any second hand or new,  imported Electric Vehicles purchased privately. This amounts to a total of €1,053,200 paid in EV grant aid to consumers of an EV.

The ESB through its ecar scheme is continuing to roll out public charging infastructure and domestic charging points and is on target to install 1,000 publicly accesible charge points in all major towns and cities and 60 fast chargers on major roads by the end of 2013.

It is understood that the ESB have spent €9.3 million to date on this infastructure.
