The Norwegian Parliament have decided on a goal that all new cars sold by 2025, should be zero (electric or hydrogen) or low (plug-in hybrids) emission.
Norway is leading the way for the transition to zero emission electric cars. In 2015, electric vehicles had a 22 % market share in Norway.

This is first and foremost due to a substantial package of incentives developed to promote zero emission cars.
The Norwegian Parliament’s decision is a very ambitious but feasible goal with the right policy measures.
The Parliament will reach this goal with a strengthened green tax system based on the polluter pays principle, not a ban.
