(XinhuaNet)  Finnish love with biofuels as a key approach to reduce emissions has made the Nordic country one of the least active Western European countries to prepare for the arrival of electric car era, an expert said on Wednesday.

Pekka Leviakangas, senior researcher at the Technology Research Centre, VTT told Xinhua that Finland’s relatively low auto emission compared with other nations has also contributed to the slowness.

In France, it was decided in June that petrol and diesel powered cars could not be sold after 2040.

Annual sales of electric private cars in Finland remain at the level of a few hundreds, and their users have complained about the need to plan long haul journeys with a view to the availability of electricity. And electric buses are mainly in city commuter services.
