Noorwegen bereikt mijlpaal: 100.000 elektrische auto’s

22 december 2016Veel eerder dan gedacht, bereikt Noorwegen de mijlpaal van 100.000 elektrische auto’s. En over vier jaar moeten het er 400.000 zijn. (Ter vergelijking: Nederland telt nu ruim 86.000 stekkerauto’s.)

Het nieuws werd bekend gemaakt door Christina Bu van de Norwegian EV Association.
Uit een bericht van Climate Action
‘(…) Christina Bu: “The present fleet cuts approximately 200,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually. Even though BEVs [battery electric vehicles – red] only account for 3% of the total passenger car fleet, we have achieved a substantial reduction. But there is more to come.” Electric vehicles currently make up 24 per cent of Norway’s total vehicles – 13 per cent of which are electric vehicles and 11 per cent of which are plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. This percentage is approximately 8 times higher than Sweden – the next leading country with just under 3 per cent electric vehicles. (…)
She also noted that, despite being a small country, Norway is recognised for its impact on the global adoption of zero-emissions vehicles: “Norway inspires other countries to implement similar measures, and we show the international automotive industry how to create consumer demand for electric cars. We get ever more proof supporting this notion.”
The Norwegian government has recently announced plans to aim for 100 per cent of new vehicle sales to be zero emissions models by 2025. (…)’
