The popularity of electric cars in Norway

In fact, electric cars are becoming increasingly important in Norway. The market share of battery and plug-in hybrid cars in the country highly grew in recent years, reaching almost 50 percent as of 2018. By contrast, the market share stood at 0.22 percent ten years earlier. The reason for the growing popularity of electric cars in Norway is that the government for example reduced taxes and increased subsidies for electric car owners.
