Eelectric cars: Why little Norway leads the world in EV usage

It’s the latest record-breaking statistic involving Norway and electric vehicle (EV) records as the Scandinavian nation looks to stop sales of fossil-fuelled cars by 2025. The numbers could be even higher, but thousands of Norwegians find themselves on long waiting lists as dealerships struggle to import enough vehicles. According to industry figures, a total of 11,518 EVs were registered in Norway during the first quarter of 2019, twice as many as the previous year. The new Tesla Model 3, Nissan Leaf and Volkswagen Golf account for the majority of registrations. Norway remains the poster child of the EV revolution because there are far more EVs on Norwegian roads as a proportion of total vehicles than anywhere else in the world thanks to favourable environmental math and financial incentives.
