There are more electric car charging docks than petrol stations in Denmark. According to the Danish Energy Association, there are now 2,030 electric charging stations – two more than the 2,028 petrol stations scattered around the country.
As reported by Business Insider Nordic, the boost in electric vehicle infrastructure is not enough to increase the use of these EV vehicles. In fact, the country’s EV-sales have plummeted after the Danish government decided to cut back subsidies for electric vehicles.
According to The Copenhagen Post, only 182 electric cars have been sold in Denmark so far this year, and just 17 of those sales have been to private consumers. That’s a steep decline from the 4,605 sold in 2015.
