Survey: 73% Danes want elected politicians to make special efforts to promote EV sales
According to a recently published Ingeniøren report, the results of a new survey carried out by the YouGov for the Danish Electric Car Alliance have revealed that a vast majority of Danes support the opinion that special efforts should be made by elected politicians for promoting the sales of electric vehicles (EVs).
Specifically, as per the survey results, 73% of Danes believe that political efforts are needed for increasing the adoption of EVs in the country. In the Nordic countries, acceptance of electric vehicles is much higher compared to rest of Europe.
The results of the survey are an evident indication of the fact that the Danes are getting gradually more inclined towards EVs. Earlier, a similar survey conducted in 2014 had revealed that 66% of Danes support political efforts in favor of electric cars.
However, it must be noted that expressing the desire to own an EV is not the same thing as actually purchasing and electric car.
Meanwhile, against the backdrop of the survey, Danish Electric Vehicle Alliance’s Director Lærke Flader said that, thus far, there has not been much political effort in terms of achieving carbon-dioxide reductions in the transport sector, and also in comparison to the efforts being made in the neighbouring countries.
Lærke Flader asserted: “The survey shows clearly that you can question whether the politicians are in par with their constituents.
