Electric and hybrid cars number in Norway 2010-2018

Number of electric cars and plug-in hybrids in Norway from 2010 to 2018

by Julia Stoll, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Electric and hybrid cars number in Norway 2010-2018 Over the last years, the stock of electric and plug-in hybrid cars in Norway has increased, reaching nearly 300 thousand as of 2018. In 2010, there were only 3,347 registered electric cars. The number was highest in one of the most heavily populated Norwegian counties, Akershus. In second and third place came southern Oslo and Hordaland.
Stock vs sales

The statistic only shows the electric cars that are registered per December 31 in the respective year in Norway. It includes both passenger cars and vans. Equally important is the number of newly registered electric cars or in other words, car sales for a year. In 2018, roughly a third of all cars sold in Norway were electric ones. Diesel accounted for only 17.75 percent of newly registered cars.

Support of electric cars by the government

In comparison to other European countries in 2018, Norway ranked highest regarding new electric car registrations. But why is the country so keen on electric driving? The reason is that the Norwegian government has made it easy for car owners to choose electric cars through tax reductions and subsidies, as well as free parking and lower annual fees for using the roads for electric car owners. Besides, the state has the goal of not selling more petrol or diesel cars in the country from 2025 onwards.
