Big increase in electric car sales

Sales of electric vehicles are on the rise.

In the first 11 months of 2021, a further 260 electric cars were sold, bringing the total up to 567.

This is, however, just a tiny proportion of the total number of vehicles.

Out of all the 41,534 vehicles registered in the Faroes, 639 are powered by electricity, including mopeds.

Of the 27,426 passenger cars, 16,289 are powered by petrol and 9,795 are powered by diesel, according to Akstovan.
