Norway has been ahead of every other country in the world for quite a number of years now and in 2020, for the first time electric cars outsold traditional petrol and diesel combustion cars. In 2020 54.3% of all the new cars sold were fully electric BEV vehicles, not hybrid at all. In the year previously, 42.1% of the cars sold were fully electric.

In terms of what cars are being bought, the most popular cars were the Audi E Tron models and in second place was the relatively new Volkswagen ID.3. Coming fourth was the Tesla Model S.

Norway will be the first country in the world to ban the sales of combustion cars first, coming into play by 2025, way ahead of the UK at 2030.
