In Norway, sales of electric vehicles ahead of conventional cars for the first time in the world
For 2020 the Norwegians first in the world to buy more electric vehicles than hybrid, diesel and petrol together. The share of electric cars among all new cars in the oil-producing country was a record of 54.3 percent, writes Reuters.
For comparison, in 2019 electric cars had 42.4% of sales. Ten years ago, according to the Norwegian road Federation, electric cars accounted for only 1% of the market.
Most often, in 2020, the buyers preferred the electric cars of the German concern Volkswagen. In 2019 the most popular manufacturer of electric cars in Norway was a Tesla.
By 2025, Norway plans to completely abandon cars with petrol and diesel engines. As an incentive, the owners of electric cars here are exempt from taxes that pay users auto on fossil fuels.
