Norway plans to switch to electric cars

Norway plans to switch to electric cars

September 8, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

Last year, almost a third of cars sold in Norway were electric cars.

This level of quantity of this type of car is the highest in the world. But the country’s authorities have announced that there is still room to grow. Already in 2025, only electric cars should function in Norway, and gasoline engines should come to naught.

All these measures are necessary to increase the level of concern for the ecology of the state. In Norway, various measures are being introduced that will encourage people to abandon a standard car. It can already be said that the owners of an electric car do not need to pay taxes, this type of transport can also be parked for free, as well as charged throughout Norway.

Earlier on toll roads, electric car drivers were completely exempt from payment. Since the beginning of August this year, this rule has been changed: now it is necessary to pay 50% of the cost. Leif Nielsen, spokesman for the Progress Party, said the government was in a bad light for such a new one.

Note that this did not reduce the popularity of electric vehicles. This year, there has been a significant increase in the number of purchases of this type of transport. Prime Minister Erna Sulberg says that every year the level of staffing of electric vehicles is increasing, their energy consumption is increasing, and longer trips to them can be made.

As you know, the use of electric cars causes much less harm to nature than the use of standard vehicles.
