In March, electric vehicles captured 37 percent of new car sales in Norway. The government was instrumental in helping with sales, as it reduced subsidies and taxes to encourage a switch to e-cars.

Last year, sales of most fuels in Norway had witnessed a fall. It is astonishing because, in almost ten years, EV sales have never increased by three digits in a year.

The government wants all new cars in Norway should be electric vehicles, 2025 onwards. The progress is still slow, even after all those incentives. Only seven years are left for the due date and almost 2/3rd of Norway is on nonelectric vehicles.

“If Norway tells us anything, it's that even rapid EV growth isn't going to lead to peak demand as quickly as proponents think. It isn't even clear that peak demand is yet occurring in Norway,” said Robert Rapier, Energy expert.
