      Dear Sir/Madam,

      I went through the stats and there is a small confusion pertaining to the numbers. As per above data, Total = 27,395,484 | RoW = 2,861,520. Further, as per NGV Global total Asia Pacific contributes to around 20 Million Units. If we deduct above APAC countries, the rest of Asia Pacific is contributing to around 5 Million Units. My main concern is that there is a huge difference in RoW and the rest of Asia Pacific numbers. Also, the middle east countries (excluding Iran) is included or not included in the data. It would be really helpful if you can help with the concerned area. Thanks in advance!

      • dperry says:

        Dear Sahil, the current count of NGVs for 2019 is 28.54 million, of which Asia has almost 72%. Asia includes China, Iran, India and Pakistan as the four countries with highest number of NGVs.
