Nine out of ten newly registered cars in Norway are purely electric vehicles. More than half of households with battery-powered vehicles owned three or more.

Owners of electric cars are, on average, more educated than those of combustion engines. Almost one in ten households that once owned a battery- powered vehicle gave it up during the period. The government abolished a VAT exemption for particularly expensive electric cars, but the remaining government subsidies amounted to the equivalent of more than 3.7 billion euros last year.
