Mobility in Denmark

October 2023

Light vehicles are forecast to see slower growth over the forecast period, with SUVs and crossovers representing 61% of total sales by 2027. The government’s financial incentives, such as lower registration taxes favouring electric and zero-emission vehicles, will drive sales further over the forecast period. Shared mobility will also benefit from this. The expansion of roads and infrastructure will encourage wider use of public transport, due to better connectivity.
