Comparison to other Nordic countries

In Denmark, electric cars are not as popular as in other Nordic countries. According to a study conducted in 2018 among selected European countries, it was found that 0.6 percent of all newly registered passenger cars were battery electric driven and 1.5 percent were plug-in hybrid electric driven. Thus, Denmark came in 11th place. By contrast, Norway ranked highest, with a total market share of 48.3 percent. Iceland, Sweden, and Finland were ranked in the top five as well.
