In 2010 nearly 100 % of cars sold in Norway were fossil with nearly 80 % diesel cars and where the remaining 20 % were gasoline cars. Electric cars only counted for a couple of hundreds and were hardly visible in the statistics. Only eight years later the situation is completely altered. Purely electric cars count for more than 50% of the sales and by including plug in and hybrid cars, more than 3/4 cars have an electric engine system. Diesel cars are down from 80% to 8% in only 8 years!
By 2025 Norway have a goal of ending the sale of fossil vehicles. By looking at the statistics it looks very promising. A combination of battery electric (BEV) and fuel cell/hydrogen electric cars (FCEV) would be able to eliminate all fossil cars.
