Norway bans all new diesel and petrol cars on 1 January

Right now there are so many electric cars in Norway that the car type will overtake both petrol and diesel cars this year, if the development continues at the same pace.

If the development in the Norwegian car market goes as it seems at the moment, electric cars will already be the dominant ones on the country's roads in 2025.

And not enough of that. Already on 1 January 2025, Norway's social democratic government will have banned all new diesel and petrol cars in the country. Craftsmen will also be prohibited from working for the public sector if they do not have electric cars.

Reuters writes that.

The news agency can also say that there are currently 700,000 electric cars in the country.

Already, 9 out of 10 new cars sold in Norway run exclusively on electricity. While 25 percent of the car fleet is electric.

And if that development continues at the same speed, there will already be more electric cars than both diesel and petrol cars in Norway in 2029. This is deeply saddened by the government.

Virtually all electric cars in Norway are exempt from tax. When the Labor Party came to power in 2021, however, they promised to impose taxes on electric cars, at least the most expensive of them. Read more about it here.

Despite this development, the Norwegian state still loses around NOK 43 billion on subsidizing electric cars.

As it looks right now, there are 776,000 petrol cars, just over 1 million diesel cars, 339,000 hybrids and then 700,000 pure electric cars in Norway.

When the Norwegians can enforce a ban on all new diesel and petrol cars already from next year, it is because the country is not part of the EU. Here it will only become a requirement in 2035.
