out Of all the new cars sold in Norway last year was a 42.4 per cent clean electric cars, 60.315 vehicle, there are numbers that would make any other country with a climate ambitions avundsamt. As in Sweden, where it is in the last year, sold 15.596 pure electric vehicles, with a share of 4.4 per cent.
However, since the goal of the season was a 50-per-cent stake, there was a moderate setback on an analysis of the Norwegian elbilsförening. It was, among other things, that the electric cars cannot compete in the larger segments, because three out of every four buyers of the SUV models will still opt for a fossildrivet the vehicle.
the other conclusion was that the debate on road pricing, which has been going on in Norway, has contributed to the uncertainty about the benefits of electric car users in the future.
Outside of the borders of the country, the Norwegian success story, however, is a complete success, which had spread all over the world.
frequently asked questions about this phenomenon. Large international companies are sending reporters to Norway to do a story. The world wonder about why electric cars are subsidized by the government in Norway does not even have its own elbilsindustri. And the wonders of foreign journalists on the mainland are, in particular, aware of environmental issues.
" But it's not. The reason why it sold so many electric cars, is that it makes sense economically for the people who buy our cars, " says Unni Berge, the Norwegian elbilsförening.
In Norway, normally for a significantly lump sum payments on a new car, which will give the government revenue, at approximately an amount of sek 80,000 for a normal Nissan, but electric cars are exempt from this rule. Electric cars are also exempt from vat. And they have been able to be parked free of charge, to avoid the congestion charge, and tolls, and had to run in the kollektivfiler.

to fully bid the electric car users on to all of this, it is now a rule that they have to pay up to one-half of the amount it costs for a fossil-fuel car in the ”bompeng” and on-site parking and an electric vehicle must be a passenger in order to get to be in the kollektivfält, this is stöttningen of the state is still unique.
the Goal is to make every car that is sold in Norway in the year 2025 will be an electric car. There is a political consensus on the matter. However, the debate has begun as to how long the current generous policy will continue as and when electric cars will start to compete on a level playing field.
" If the government had introduced the vat tax and one-off charges in the electric cars it had put an end to the elbilsförsäljningen in the morning. Electric vehicles are not competitive with a full charge, so we need to have the benefits of them over the years, but in the long run, we believe that the electric car is its own power, victorious over petrol engines, and the dieselbilen, " says Unni Berge.
already in the early 1990s, with a limited production of electric cars, I Think (that went out of business in 2011, Buddy's, which is formerly known as the Kewet.
The big boom started in 2014-15, with a small imported electric cars, as people are used to and from work.
" the great electric cars that can go much further. The owners of them often use the fast charge mode, and the driving of the electric car is more like a normal car, and not just as a vehicle to get to work, " says Unni Berge.
In a short period of time in the last year, the Tesla Model X is Norway's fourth best-selling car.
< a elbilsnation is currently under construction. At the same time tell the statistics of a two-part development.
today, the number of electric cars in Norway, the passing of 250,000 pieces, out of a total of 2.7 million passenger vehicles in the total vehicle fleet. The share of electric cars is approaching the top ten per cent.
On the other hand, the total number of vehicles has grown considerably. Diesel passenger and light vans has increased from the 900,000 vehicles in 2008 to more than 1.7 million in ten years in the future.
Many people would be happy to have an electric car, but a car that runs on petrol or diesel, in either of the cars.
it is from a political side, says the economist Steinar Juel, in the think-tank Civita, where the replacement of old cars with high emissions for electric cars are emission-free, but what has happened is that the stock of cars rather than increased.
" Many people would be happy to have an electric car, but a car that runs on petrol or diesel, in either of the cars.
in his view, the Norwegian government, the stimulation of the purchase of an electric vehicle is a bad economy.
"It's an extremely precious and has been made to the state's revenue from one-time fees and tax on cars has decreased by 40 percent since 2005," he said.
it has a one-time fee of regular gasoline and diesel has fallen sharply.
When the revenues decreased, and Norway, instead, got the money deposited into the state treasury through the introduction of road user charges.
a Very foolish, describe, Steinar Juel, the system that supports electric vehicles financially viable.
the Evs are filling up the roads, they will pull up the dust that flies around in the car parks and will cause delays for the buses, just like the fossilbilar, " he says, taking the example of the dissatisfaction with the stimulus measures.
" People are quite annoyed over the fact that it is possible to purchase a pricey electric-powered Tesla, and equip it with the exclusive on Bang Olufsen speakers, without having to pay the tax. All of the peripheral devices is a tax-exempt status of an electric vehicle.Photo: Lars Lindqvist
that the one-time fees shall be imposed for heavy-duty electric vehicles, such as some models of the Tesla, and the sales tax for electric vehicles, which cost over 600,000 dollars. However, no earlier than 2021 or 2022, it is believed Steinar Juel, that such fees and charges will be gradually put into use.
the Norwegian elbilsförening have been warning the politicians for the phase-out of the policy too quickly.
the Argument is that the cost of reducing emissions, and that the elbilspolitiken is not any more expensive than any other climate-related measures. In addition, according to the organization, it would be a disaster for the sales, the authorities decided to tighten up on the benefits of electric vehicles.
And still there are more than one in two new car sold in the country, with petrol or diesel. Also, if the target for 2020 is a share of clearly over 60 per cent of the electric car, as it's a long way to go for the goal by 2025, 100 per cent.
as Of Norway to succeed in the most optimistic case, it may in five years be one million electric cars in the country.
