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.

So Denmark has proven that there is no significant market for EVs at their current cost. Surprise, surprise... ;)

Also, despite the remarks about "non-polluting vehicles" and "clean energy", and Denmark's four decades of leadership in wind power, about half of the electrical energy in Denmark is generated by burning fossil fuels.
