Norway is the country with the most electric cars

In Norway, no less than one car in five is electric, ie 20% of the vehicles present in the territory. A record!

There is an exception to the end of the sale of thermal vehicles in 2035 voted by the European Parliament: luxury cars (Ferrari, etc.). Of course, they are few, so emissions will be limited, but for the symbol and social justice, it will be necessary to iron

Still marginal a few years ago, sales of electric cars have grown strongly across Europe. In France alone, their market share has increased from around 9% last year to 13% in 2022. A nice increase that we owe to several reasons, such as financial incentives such as the ecological bonus as well as increasingly wide offer. There is no doubt that the ZFEs and other bans also played into the balance and encouraged some motorists to opt for this motorization, as well as the rise in the price of fuel and the previous shortage. But if France has seen its share of electric climb, it is however nothing compared to other European countries.

While the European Union has banned the sale of internal combustion vehicles from 2035, “terminal hunting” is still practiced in France. Edifying survey of@oubertalli⁩ . #OnEstPasSortisDesRonces

A real record

This is particularly the case of the Norway, which has always been ahead of the others when it comes to electric mobility. And it continues to be confirmed! Indeed, according to The Norwegian Electric Vehicle Association, connected cars have just exceeded 20% market share. A number which would then have simply doubled in less than three years. Even stronger, zero-emission cars currently represent 80% of new registrations in the country, while one in five vehicles in circulation is equipped with this engine. But the country now wants to go further, and wants all cars sold to be electric from 2025.

Declining aid

However, this goal might be a little more difficult to achieve than expected. Indeed, the Norwegian government now plans to end the financial aid put in place to encourage customers to go electric. As of January 1, the 25% VAT exemption for connected cars will indeed disappear for vehicles over €47,000. Other incentives such as the reduced toll rate and free parking could also fall by the wayside over the next few years.

The Saint Rambert East area on the@A7Trafic will offer, from July 18, 2 electric charging stations for refrigerated trucks. This offers an economical, ecological and silent alternative to noisy and polluting diesel generators.
