Did you know that over 54% of all new cars sold in Norway in 2020 were battery electric vehicles (EVs). The Norwegian national ambition is that all new cars sold by 2025 should be zero-emission (electric or hydrogen).
Redesigning cities to promote sustainable and safer forms of transport must start from the top. Norway serves as an exemplary model for widespread adoption of EV's, achieved through a combination of smart incentives, infrastructure, and benevolent conditions.
