The danes are reluctant to buy electric car: - the Price is the greatest barrier

a Great many danes can well imagine investing in an electric car. It just require that prices be put down, and that opladningsmulighederne be improved.

It is the conclusion of a new population survey made by Yougov for Tekniq Employers among 2000 the danes, who have been asked whether they could find to buy an electric car.

It informs Tekniq Employers in a press release.

Although in January of this year, has been sold 530 electric cars against 258 electric cars in January 2019, so as to form the 530 new electric vehicles on the Danish roads are still only a vanishingly small percentage of the total car sales in the month of January in the year at a total 18.761 cars.

But it is not the interest for electric cars, as it is difficult among the Danish consumers.

the Survey shows that very many danes are ready to buy an electric car.

It is, however, only 14 percent are willing to do it, as the situation is right now. 40 percent will wait until electric cars become cheaper, and 31 percent for it becomes easier to let the cars up. The respondents could mark several answers.

- It emphasises the message we have been promoting with – namely, that there is a need to increase the number of the charging points significantly – both by motorways and out in the municipalities – if we are really going to have roused the danes to want to buy an electric car, says Simon O. Rasmussen, vice president of Tekniq Employers, in the press release.

In the survey, the respondents also were asked to what extent it would affect the individual's desire to buy an electric car if there was set up more charging points.

the 16 percent answer, it would greatly have an impact, if more charging points were set up. 8 percent is equivalent 'to a very high extent', while 37 percent indicate that it in any degree will have an impact.

- Our study shows, furthermore, that access to several publicly available charging points is also a very important motivational factor for the danes, considering, whether it is time to switch to an electric car. 61 percent equivalent in our study, the in any or would greatly affect their desire to buy an electric car. Therefore, it is an area that should get a vital role in the coming years of effort on the elbilområdet, says Simon O. Rasmussen.

electric Cars are expensive enough already. 44 percent is equal as also in our study, that the just price is the greatest barrier to their desire to acquire an electric car. So if the politicians will take their own green ambitions seriously, so is the whole charging system is also something they should consider carefully, he says.
