Norway reaches an environmental milestone as the country reports 9 in 10 automobile purchases are now electric or hybrid. Tesla’s Model Y and Model 3 and Toyota’s hybrid RAV 4 models are some of the most purchased cars in Norway. Gas-fueled automobiles now account for 5% of all car purchases in Norway. Norwegian officials propose eliminating sales tax on purchases of electric vehicles to incentivize their citizens to purchase them. This milestone brings Norway closer to reaching its goal of zero emissions by 2025, allowing Norway to serve as a model for other nations to reach zero emissions.
