For the first time in history electric cars made up 58.4% of new cars sold in Norway in March. “Norway shows the whole world that the electric car can replace cars powered by gasoline and diesel and be an important contribution in the fight to reduce C02 emissions,” - Christina Bu, the Norwegian Electric Vehicle Association’s general secretary. Norway’s Parliament has voted to require that all new cars sold in the Scandinavian country be electric by 2025. Norway waived hefty vehicle import duties and registration and sales taxes for buyers of electric cars to boost sales. Owners don’t pay road tolls and use bus lanes in congested city centers. EVs are good, if the infrastructure is there, and it is certainly there in Norway where on average 95% of the power production comes from hydroelectric plants. But in countries still relying on coal or other non-green electricity sources, EVs won't solve emissions problems. But it might help to keep city centers clean.
