- We lift not a finger
At the Danish Electric vehicle Alliance stresses that the campaign's purpose is not to moralize over for the danes.

The aim is to give the danes a better knowledge of electric vehicles, making it easy to find fact-based information and to bust the most persistent myths that live among the danes, on the web and in the media. And so we will with our short videos show how regular people live with the electric car in everyday life. It is at least equally important, says Lærke Surfaces, branchechef in the Danish Electric vehicle Alliance, in a press release.
At FDM, it is hoped that the campaign can help to increase interest in and educate consumers about electric cars.

It is too bad because electric cars are not just greener than petrol and diesel cars. Often they are also cheaper to run in, and so covers the vast majority of daily kørselsbehov. Therefore, we hope the campaign can help to dispel some of the myths around electric cars and provide consumers with the knowledge and facts about electric cars", says Thomas Møller Thomsen, adm. director of FDM, in the press release.
