Norway: The Fastest Growing Electric Vehicle Market

This is a segment from PBS Newshour. The Norwegian Government has put several initiatives in place to promote the use of electric vehicles. Norway has surpassed over 100,000 EV’s on their roads and makes it the highest population to EV ratio in the world. By comparison, there are over half a million EV’s in the US. To match Norway’s percentage, it would require 6.25 million EV’s on the road.

Many countries are now pushing initiatives to end the sales of fossil-fuel powered vehicles that use gas or diesel combustion engines within the next decade or so.  In Norway, they plan to reach this milestone by 2025.
