Since a few years ago Scandinavia are some of the major drivers of electric vehicle. Although this could go even further in Norway where, according to the local environment Dagens Nœringsliv, could prohibit the sale of vehicle diesel and gasoline for the year 2025. Apparently this decision is likely to be effective, since the four main political parties could reach an agreement.
If you arrive to be met, in 2025 only could purchased electric vehicles and fuel cell in that country. Also it would be outside the hybrids and hybrid plug-in, since they include a combustion engine. This news, although still not has become effective, was celebrated by Elon Musk, through their social networks. The CEO of Tesla, gave its approval to this country, which is one of its main markets.
In Norway the Tesla Model S became the best-selling car for a few months. In addition around 24% of the vehicles in this country are now electric. In fact, this has to do with the amount of aid and incentives that receive these cars. Also influences the high taxes that must be paid by traditional combustion vehicles, which reach almost double the final price.
An issue that does not have much logic if we take into account that Norway is one of the largest exporters of oil and much of its revenues come from this fossil fuel. Seems that the ban of the diesel and gasoline by 2025 it is serious and could be decided soon. In Oslo recently was a proposal to ban all vehicles in the Center of the city for 2019. Taking into account sociological factors, it would be not unreasonable electric vehicle to finish ‘hogging’ this country.
