A Third Of New Cars Sold In Norway Last Year Were Electric Vehicles

Over 30% of new cars sold last year in Norway were electric vehicles, a new world record.

Norway is leading the way when it comes to electrification thanks to aggressive incentives and a developed network of charging stations that makes life easier for electric vehicle drivers.

Last year, 31.2% of new vehicles sold in Norway were powered by an all-electric engine up from 20.8% the year before and just 5.5% in 2013.

Electric vehicle owners in the Scandinavian country benefit from tax exemptions, free parking and free access to charging stations. Norway wants to remove fossil-fuel vehicles from its roads by 2025.
