Commenting on the findings, Luka Stojčević, a spokesperson for Vignettecroatia.com, said: “While electric cars are more common and affordable than ever, they still are an expensive purchase at a minimum for a lot of Europe, and this is seen here with electric vehicles making up less than 1% of vehicles in many countries. However, as technology improves and overall production becomes cheaper, we can expect this list to shuffle around as more countries buy into the market.”
