Norway, a world’s laboratory for sustainable mobility
Norway is leading the way for the transition to zero emission electric cars. The growth of the electrical car market in Norway has been exponential leading the fleet of plug-in electric vehicles in Norway largest per capita in the world, with Oslo recognized as the EV capital. As of June 2017, the market concentration was 33 registered plug-in cars per 1,000 people, 15 times higher than the U.S then the world's largest country market.
Norway's fleet of electric cars is one of the cleanest in the world because 98% of the electricity generated in the country comes from hydropower.
