The government, its supporting parties, and the previous government all intend to end the sale of all new diesel and petrol cars in 2030.
However, far from all Danes are ready to replace their petrol or diesel car with an EV. That is the result of our annual Mobility Monitor survey, which is conducted among 4,000 respondents in 16 different countries, including Denmark.
The survey shows that 22 percent of the Danish car users expect to buy an EV next time they need to replace their current car. 38 percent do not expect to choose an EV. Behind Belgium (10%) and Luxembourg (11%) – in third place tied with the Netherlands – Denmark is the country in Europe where the fewest people expect to buy an EV in the next five years.
On a global scale, 36 percent of all respondents that expect to buy a car in the next five years expect it to be an EV, while 29 percent are not interested in investing in an EV. 36 percent are undecided.
"A lot is happening within EV technology, so it is not necessarily alarming that Danish car users are not ready to buy EVs yet. It is our experience that some people are waiting for manufacturers to launch new battery-powered top models. At the same time, we see an increased demand for EVs on a leasing contract, meaning that there is a momentum to build on," says our CEO Michael Olsen
