Norway Banning New Sales Of Gas-Powered Cars By 2025

Political parties in Norway have agreed on a new energy policy that will include a ban on new gasoline-powered car sales as soon as 2025. Norway already has the highest percentage of electric vehicle market share of any country.

What’s probably most remarkable here is that Norway is currently one of the world’s largest Oil exporters. India confirmed that it is evaluating a scheme for all its fleet to be electric by 2030 and the Dutch government is discussing the possibility to ban gas-powered car sales and only allow electric vehicle sales starting also by 2025, but the idea divides the parliament. Norway’s initiative looks like it could be the first made into law and would only allow zero-emission vehicles to be sold in the country starting in less than a decade.
