Norway strives to ban fuel cars in 2025. Electric cars account for one-third of sales

the Internet 2019-01-05 11:27:37

In 2018, almost one-third of the new cars sold in Norway were pure electric vehicles.

This sales data strengthens Norway's global leadership in per capita electric vehicle sales. As the largest oil and gas producer in Western Europe, Norway is striving to transform into a green economy. Norway plans to ban fuel vehicles by 2025.

In order to reduce carbon emissions and air pollution, Norway has exempted battery electric vehicles and provided free parking and charging stations. According to the Norwegian Independent Road Alliance (NRF), electric vehicles accounted for 31.2% of total sales in 2018, up from 20.8% in 2017 and 5.5% in 2013, while sales of gasoline and diesel vehicles fell sharply.

Nef leader Oeyvind Solberg Thorsen said, “This is a small step towards the goal of 2025”, when Norway hopes that all new cars will achieve zero emissions. However, he warned that there is still a long way to go, because two-thirds of the nearly 148,000 cars sold in Norway in 2018 are still fuel cars and hybrid cars.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has adopted slightly different standards for electric vehicles, including rechargeable hybrid vehicles. The agency shows that the market share of Norwegian electric vehicles in 2017 was 39%, much higher than Iceland (12%) and Sweden (6%).

In contrast, the International Energy Agency's data show that in 2017, the market share of such electric vehicles in China and the United States was 2.2% and 1.2% respectively.

In 2018, Nissan's upgraded Leaf electric car is the highest-selling model in Norway, and other high-selling cars include BMW and Volkswagen as well as Tesla. Last year, in Norway, sales of pure electric vehicles surged 40% to 46,092 units, while sales of diesel models fell 28%, sales of gasoline vehicles fell 17%, and sales of hybrid vehicles fell 20%.

Data show that in 2018, the overall sales of new cars in Norway fell by 6.8% to 147,929 units, breaking the upward trend in recent years.
