Denmark wants to ban petrol and diesel cars

In Denmark, there are from 2030 no cars with a petrol or diesel engine more sold. Remarkable given: also hybrids from that year no longer sold.

From news coverage from Reuters shows that the Danish prime minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen has decided that, from 2030, no new cars with a petrol or diesel engine on board be allowed to be sold. "I am a proponent of cars, but they need the environment not destroy it," said the Danish government in front of the media. That means that from 2030, only fully electric cars sold in Denmark may be. Hybrids from that year, from the inventory, and more.

Denmark wants the sale of EV's driving by they are cheaper to make, there should still be a proposal to be written. In addition, it is being considered to allow EV's to allow bus lanes. The above developments are striking. Earlier, the government decided in the context of cuts to subsidies to "environmentally friendly" cars back to screws.

The sale of EVS is in Denmark, not exactly like clockwork. In the first half of this year, there were 524 electric cars vekrocht. Although that is significantly more than the 146 units in the same period of 2017 were sold, the EV sales in Denmark is significantly behind that of countries such as the Netherlands (9.501 in the first half of this year), France, Germany and Sweden*.
