Electric Cars in Norway
By 2025, Norway has a plan for all new cars to have zero emissions, and it is possible to achieve this goal. In 2018, almost one third of all new vehicles sold in Norway were already 100 percent electric.
People reported it to be a world record for yearly vehicle sales. This shows a growing trend in Norway where electric vehicle sales were only 5.5 percent five years ago.
Norway’s 2025 plan is very ambitious, but the government is trying to convince people to make the switch by offering a lot of incentives like free parking and not having to pay some taxes.
Difficult words: zero emissions (making no gas into the air), ambitious (a new, interesting idea that may not happen), convince (tell somebody to do something and he or she does it), incentive (a thing that motivates someone to do something).
