Denmark may be open to financial incentives to buy electric cars after seeing a dramatic drop in sales of non-polluting vehicles, according to Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen.

“We have tax incentives for electric cars, and you could discuss if they should be bigger. I will not exclude that," Rasmussen said in an interview in Copenhagen. Any new incentives would be announced along with a government plan to boost clean-energy consumption after the summer, he said.

Danish sales of electric vehicles have fallen dramatically -- from nearly 5,000 in 2015 to around 700 in 2017 -- since Rasmussen’s center-right government phased out subsidies such as those offered in Norway and Germany. The development decimated sales of Tesla, whose Model S once dominated the local market.
