The Norwegian EV initiative : case study report - Study
The nowadays Electric Vehicles initiative in Norway can be seen as a way to address different challenges that the country and the world has; conversion to green energy and greenhouse gas emissions. However, the initiative started out with being a help for the national electric vehicle-producers, Think and Buddy in the beginning of the 1990’s. The first objectives were to create an industry of electric vehicles in Norway. This was done through the first tax incentives. Later on, the Norwegian parliament have decided that by 2025, all new cars that are sold shall be zero (electric or hydrogen)... or low (plug-in hybrids) emission.
