Boom to bust for Danish electric vehicles

Denmark's eagerly anticipated electric-car boom has proved such a failure that Copenhagen may reclaim 16 special parking spaces for ordinary motorists, Jyllands-Posten newspaper reported today. The spaces have stood virtually empty for about ten years, losing the local authority up to DKr210,000 (euros 28,300) per year in potential parking fees.

More are used in the public sector or by private organisations, but these tend to offer their own parking and recharging facilities. See article.
