That because the "TAXES" on an automobile . . . The purchase of a new car in Denmark sets off a 180% sales tax - in other words, a $20,000 sedan will cost you $50,000 to drive off the lot. Heavy gasoline taxes, which were recently increased, bring the price of a gallon of fuel up to around $8 a gallon, even though the country is largely burning its own North Sea oil. Even parking fees are punitive: an hour on the street in downtown Copenhagen will cost you $6, and payment isn't optional because the meter maids mean business. On a small street near my old home in Christianshavn, they gave out 1692 parking tickets in a single year.
