Sales share of cars in Norway 2020 by fuel type

As of November 2020, every second car sold in Norway was electric. Cars using conventional fuel types such as diesel or gasoline declined in sales in 2020. When compared to other European countries, Norway has by far thehighest share of electric vehicles.

Green ambitions

The increased popularity of electric vehicles in Norway is spurred by several political incentives that have led the way for the rise in sales. Electric car owners are granted different subsidies when purchasing an electric car. These incentives are further supported by a political aim to have zero emissions from sold passenger cars as of 2025.

A nation of renewable energy

Despite its abundance of crude oil, Norway has a long tradition of using renewable energy sources. As of 2018, the entire electricity production in the country derived from sustainable sources with 95 percent stemming from hydro energy. According to the 2020 Climate Change Performance Index, Norway placed ninth when ranking countries with the highest achievements in climate protection, while the neighboring country, Sweden, placed first.
