Electric Cars Hit 100,000 in Norway

The clean cars are already saving the Nordic country some 200,000 tons of CO2 emissions per year, and the plan is to boost their number to 400,000 over the next three years, the Electric Vehicle Association said. Generous state-funded measures, including tax breaks, free city tolls and free parking, have catapulted Norway to the top of the electric car league. By last year, Norway had the fourth largest fleet of electric cars in the world in absolute terms, after the United States, China and Japan, according to Transport and Environment, a European green transport lobby.
