In July, the share of electric cars in new car sales ended at 45.1 percent, this is according to figures from the Road Traffic Information Council. The Electric Car Association is not pleased with this. 


The Storting has a goal of 100 percent zero emissions in new car sales by 2025, something the Electric Car Association believes will be difficult to achieve. They believe that the sales of electric cars should be over 50 percent now, and closer to 60 percent by the end of the year if the goal is to be reached.

-”Norway is a country in the world with by far the most electric car per capita, but the goals going forward are ambitious. If we are to reach the goal of 100 percent new electric car sales in 2025, both the sales figures and the development of fast chargers must keep pace with the number of electric cars on the road.”, says Communications Manager, Unni Berge, of the Norwegian Electric Car Association.
