USA: Norway’s Subsidies Are Key to Success of Electric Vehicles

?Nissan attributes impressive LEAF sales in Norway to the nation’s willingness to establish a vast, public-use charging infrastructure and to subsidies that are virtually unmatched by any other country in the world.

The keys to the success of the electric automobile lie in the decisions of governments and the willingness to establish a vast, public-use charging infrastructure, according to Olivier Paturet, general manager of zero emission strategy at Nissan of Europe. Paturet was referring to the immediate success of the Nissan LEAF in Norway, stating, “We are very happy to see that the ambition of the Norwegian government has matched our own with strong support for the widespread introduction of electric vehicles. The Norwegian package of incentives is unsurpassed and the recharging infrastructure is established and accessible. We can see that Norway is leading the way with its proactive approach to encouraging its citizens to drive electric vehicles.”

EV buyers in Norway are exempt from a wide range of taxes, fees, import duty and congestion charges. These exemptions can greatly reduce the price of the vehicle.
