PMC claims 3.6 million full-text articles, European PMC is at 3.3 million. Not sure but I'm guessing they are almost identical to one another.

Is there an API available for PMC?

You can use E-utlities to interact with it. Be careful though, there are restrictions on downloading in bulk from PMC. LIkely similar restrictions on European PMC. Best to go through both websites thoroughly.
