Despite concerted efforts by the Finnish government, the country continues to trail far behind the leaders of the pack in Europe’s race towards electric vehicle adoption. In the face of increasingly demanding targets and a growing public consensus on the harmful impact which gas-fueled vehicles have on the environment, Finland’s total EV sales continue to be far too slow to build up to levels necessary to reach targeted carbon emission reductions. Currently the EVs amount to a total of 109 of Finland’s 2.6 million vehicles, while hybrids do make up a far greater portion at 6,114, these numbers still fall far short of the ratio which recent studies suggest is necessary to achieve the EU mandated emission targets for 2025 (95 g/km per vehicle).
