OK i was wondering where you were getting your numbers from as I have not heard of >50% sale of new EVs in this country. That article is based on the city of Oslo and does not include the rest of the country. In November 2018 it was announced that as of then the amount of newly purchased EVs had just reached 30% nationwide, so still a ways to go. But yes, the incentives will slowly diminish and all realize that. Hence the amount of car leasings has also skyrocketed as people are afraid their newly purchased EVs may not be so popular anymore when they try to sell them some time later due to no more incentives.#phila, this was my source: https://www.citylab.com/environment/2018/12/norway-electric-vehicle-models-incentives-car-free-oslo/578932/
I double checked and see now that the language was "Norweigians risk losing..." not "Norweigians are losing...". My bad, but it sounds up in the air, either way.
Yeah that's because you think that people in your generation are loaded and you're right that *some* people are ... but they're all techies so they drive Tesla. *You* are a uniquely refined individual of your generation >I'm pretty surprised with the results, actually.
I'm 37 and find it to be right in line with my stage in life.
I would have expected the largest segment to be 40-50 not 50-60 and more people in their late 30s like me!
We are tied!EV sales will stutter in Norway once the government incentives diminish. But again Norway is not just Oslo, Stavanger, Bergen and Trondheim, it stretches way up north and even borders Russia at the very top. Those guys up there wont be happy when the only option available are EVs.
Where do you get the '2019 is the last year of 25% VAT tax waiver for EVs' information from? That is supposed to still be around until at least January 1, 2021 as far as I am aware.
There is always hefty debate around all of these incentives, but from March 1 2019 all EVs in the Oslo area will be paying a small amount for toll passages as well and it will soon also be like that in Bergen. Stavanger is still up for discussion, but likely also be the end of 2019 the toll passages wont be free anymore.
