Gas 2 | Bridging the gap between green heads and gear heads.

Electric motor vehicles are all the rage in Norway, and the Parliament of Norway is in full support as EV’s near the 1% market share milestone. Almost halfway to its goal of having 50,000 zero emission vehicles, Norway will soon become the first nation to have 1 electric vehicle for every 100 vehicles on the road.

Charged up by the incentives put forth by theEV Norway program, the Tesla Model S and Nissan Leaf have both spent time at the top of Norway’s sales ranks, helping make up the 12% EV slice of new car sales.

Norway has been making EV ownership cheaper since the early 90’s by eliminating the EV import tax, reducing the annual registration tax, exemptions from road tolls, reducing the company car tax on EVs, and eliminating VAT (sales tax) on EV purchases. EVs are additionally allowed to travel in bus lanes nationwide and enjoy unlimited free rides on public ferries, but it has only been in past year that electric vehicle sales have surged in the Scandinavian country.
