Increase taxation on vehicles – and boost EV sales

Anders Berner

9 October 2013


Electrical vehicles (EVs) only make up 0.19 per cent of all car sales in Denmark. According to PA transport expert Søren Have, one of the reasons for this is that the tax exemption on EVs is not enough to make Danes choose the EV over a regular car. 

“Even if an EV is just a secondary car, it’s still much more expensive than a cheap gasoline-driven vehicle. And after Better Place went bankrupt, it is no longer possible to have an EV as primary car by swapping the car batteries,” says Søren. 

According to Søren, the Danish government does not make it attractive to buy an EV: “We should do what they do in Norway and remove some of the taxation on company cars, make parking free and allow EVs to drive in the bus lanes.”
