According to Reuters almost every third car sold in Norway in 2018, was electric, which brings much to the plan, according to which this Nordic country would end sales of ICE engined cars already by the year 2025.

Norway helps its citizens to decide to transfer to environmentally friendlier means of transport by exempting most taxes for electric driven cars and also with other benefits such as free parking, free charging points and similar. According to Norwegian Road Federation electric car share was increased to 31,2 percent comparing to 20,8 percent in 2017 and 5,5 percent in 2013, so just about five years ago. Of course sales of petrol and diesel cars were comparatively lower, but still amounting about two thirds of all new car sales.

The top selling car in Norway last year was second generation Nissan Leaf.
