In general, it has become easier to choose and drive an electric car throughout Europe, but the Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom have the best conditions for the transition to electric cars.
That is the result of LeasePlan's annual EV Readiness Index 2021, which is an in-depth analysis of EV readiness in a number of European countries based on three factors: the number of registered electric cars, charging infrastructure and government incentives.
With an EV readiness of 23 points, Denmark enters a 13th place together with Switzerland. Despite an increase of 1 point compared to 2020, Denmark moves one place back on the list, and Denmark, like previous years, is far behind our Nordic neighbors. Norway is in 1st place with a score of 42 ahead of the Netherlands with 38 points and the United Kingdoim with 33 points, while Sweden scores 29 points and a 5th place.
LeasePlan Denmark CEO, Michael Olsen, is happy about general positive development, but at the same time he believes that Denmark should be higher on the list:
"Our analysis shows that the conditions for choosing and driving an electric car in Europe are better than ever before. It has simply become more attractive than it was before. Unfortunately, we can also see that Denmark has not moved at all since last year, and we are still far behind compared to our neighboring countries," he says.
