Norway to hit 100 per cent electric vehicle sales early next year – Drive

Norway is on track to bid farewell to the sale of new petrol and diesel-powered cars by April 2022, according to new analysis released by the Norwegian Automobile Federation (NAF).

According to monthly new car sales data released by Norway’s Road Traffic Information Council (OVF), the last internal combustion engine vehicle is set to leave the dealership next April, almost three years ahead of the Norwegian government’s 2025 stated target for the phasing out completely of sales of new petrol and diesel cars.

According to the Norwegian government’s representative inside the NAF, Thor Egil Braadland, those numbers point to an early grave for conventional internal combustion engine cars.
