The Norwegian government and Enova have launched a support scheme for electric mopeds and motorcycles. People can get up to NOK 25,000 if they opt for an electric variant.
A press release from Enova states that people can get NOK 15,000 in support for a light electric motorcycle and NOK 25,000 for a heavy electric motorcycle. If you get an electric moped, you can get up to NOK 3,500.
The vehicle must be first registered in the vehicle register, which means that people cannot receive the financial support for the purchase of a used vehicle.
“The government wants to cut emissions by electrifying the transport sector. We are already a pioneering country when it comes to electric cars, and we are now building charging infrastructure all over the country. This new support offer from Enova will also make it easier for those who want to buy a moped or motorcycle to choose an emission-free alternative,” Minister of Climate and Environment Espen Barth Eide (AP) stated.
The scheme is time-limited and will be assessed on an ongoing basis, based on market status and other conditions.
“Enova’s goal is not to increase the total sales of mopeds and motorcycles, but in a way that the vehicles sold in the future are electric as far as possible. We want to make it a little easier to make smart climate choices,” Anna Theodora Barnwell, marketing manager at Enova, stated.
