Mobility in Sweden

September 2023

Light vehicle sales declined in 2022 as pandemic-related issues and supply challenges persisted. The EV market is set to reach 82% of the total market by 2027. Sustainability incentives continue to dominate the mobility landscape, with further investments made on infrastructure modernisation and zero emissions cars. Public transport and shared mobility are also set to benefit from these incentives. The Swedish government is also investing in research into vehicles with level 3 autonomy.

The mobility reports examine how people travel, the emerging mobility trends and transport spending preferences.

Each mobility report covers five key topics:

Vehicle sales and ownership: Provides insights on the traditional automotive market, examining new car sales and registrations, sales by passenger car type and consumer preference for vehicle ownership.

Electric and alternative fuel vehicles: Analyses electric and alternative fuel passenger car registrations, as well as the legislative frameworks being introduced to incentivise consumer adoption of new fuel vehicles.

Shared mobility: Explores the use of various shared mobility modes including ride hailing, ride sharing, scooter sharing, car sharing and bike sharing. Provides some insights on the legislative frameworks or lack thereof in promoting shared mobility.

Public transportation: Outlines the modes, usage and consumer attitudes to public transport. Also studies the government initiatives being rolled out to modernise public transport fleets.

Autonomous vehicles and connectivity: Examines the penetration and market readiness of autonomous cars as well as consumer attitudes to self-driving vehicles. In addition, it provides an analysis of infrastructure, legislation and government support of factors critical to the promotion of self-driving/autonomous cars.
