Swedish green car market is growing strongly

January 18, 2008

Swedish green car market is growing strongly

A total of 55,000 new green cars were registered in Sweden in 2007, an increase of 49 per cent on the figure for 2006. This means that green cars accounted for 18 per cent of the total car market in Sweden. At the turn of the year there were 50 different green car models on the Swedish market.

“Sweden is showing the strongest growth in green car sales in the world”, Sweden’s Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, said in a debate in Parliament.

The most common type of green cars sold in 2007 was ethanol driven (11.5 per cent of all sold cars). Green cars also include cars powered by gas (0.6 per cent), hybrid cars (1.1 per cent) and petrol or diesel cars that emit less than 120 grams CO2 per kilometre (6.6 per cent). A total of 307,000 new cars were sold in Sweden in 2007.

The Swedish Government has introduced a rebate of SEK 10,000 for private individuals who buy a new green car. The rebate scheme came into effect on 1 April 2007 and will continue until 31 December 2009. The Government has allocated SEK 50 million to the rebate scheme for 2007, SEK 100 million for 2008 and SEK 100 million for 2009.
