Denmark: E-cars and plug-in hybrids overtake diesel

Electric cars and plug-in hybrids outperformed standard diesel car sales in Denmark in 2021 (January to November).

Figures from the car import association "De Danske Bilimportører":

Electric cars 13%, plug-in hybrids 22%, diesel 14%, petrol 51%

In December 2021, more environmentally friendly vehicles accounted for 58% of all car purchases. But the success also has a downside: There are still not enough charging stations across the country. That should change this year.

"Green cars made a remarkable final spurt in December, in a year in which green car sales fared far better than most had dared hope. Electric car sales are up 75 percent compared to 2020, while Plug -in hybrids have grown by over 120 percent, but we expect that the share of plug-in hybrids will decrease in 2022 as the tax on them increased at the turn of the year," said Mads Rørvig, CEO of Danish Association of Car Importers.

A year ago, the government and parliament decided to put at least 775,000 electric or hybrid cars on Danish roads by 2030 in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 70% by 2030. At that time there were 2.5 million cars on the road in the country, around 20,000 of them electric cars.
