Though we're hardly a patch on uber-wealthy Luxembourg, with 647 cars for every 1000 people, our per capita ownership rate is very high indeed, surprising given most of us live in big cities with accessible public transport.

Car ownership is also high in wealthy countries with remote rural populations, such as Iceland and New Zealand. Surprisingly, the United States, home of the motor vehicle, has fewer cars per person than either Australia or Canada.
