There’s A Dodge Demon On Sale In Norway For $300,000

In the land of electric vehicles, this Norwegian Dodge Demon is a rare sight indeed

  • Dodge Demon for sale in Norway for nearly four times the original sticker price


This Dodge Demon is everything Norway is not and it comes with a price.

Norway is known for its beautiful scenery, disciplined people, and quaint, refined Oslo. It’s a global leader in electric vehicle sales and how people behave on a Norwegian road should be the benchmark for every other country in the world.

The Dodge Demon is the poster car for unbridled performance. Vicious, loud, difficult to control, and horribly inefficient, it’s the farthest thing from an electric vehicle that you can think of. And yet, there’s a Demon for sale in Norway.

It’s not cheap, however. The car is sold by Norwegian Machinery, a dealer located about 100 miles south of Oslo. As for the retail on one of those, the dealer is asking 2,690,000 Norwegian Krone, about $290,000 US, or roughly $385,000 in Canada.

The rarity of the car explains in part the crazy sticker price, but Norway’s aggressive taxation on polluting cars is really what pushes the price up so high. There are a variety of taxes that apply to new vehicles in Norway, but the C02 tax is the one that’s a killer for a car like the Demon.

It’s based on how much C02 a given vehicle produces. The demon with its supercharged, 808-horsepower 6.2-litre HEMI V8, produces a ton of C02.

You can bump the output to 840 horsepower if you use 100-plus octane fuel, something that probably doesn’t even exist in Norway.

So if you’re wondering how to stand out on Friday night in Norway, this may just be the car for you. Just remember that combustion cars are frowned up into downtown Oslo. You’ll have to park your $300k Dodge Demon far away and walk just like everybody else.
