Norway will take drastic measures in the fight against climate change. When it comes to the government, no new gasoline and diesel vehicles to be longer permitted from 2025th The aim is to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.
This is an important point in the National Transport Plan, which is currently being hotly debated in the country. The transport sector is responsible for a third of the C02 emissions in Norway. Other modes of transport should be turned inside out: After 2030, all new ships and ferries should be emission-free, in the air and in heavy traffic more biofuel to be used
The. country with just over five million inhabitants is already a leader in providing e-mobility. In no other country in Europe are sold in terms of population as many electric cars. 15 percent of all newly registered passenger cars run on electricity. And it should be a lot more. Norway became rich thanks to large oil and gas deposits, gaining almost 100 percent of its electricity from environmentally friendly sources: water and wind. The purchase of electric cars is already being promoted in Norway for years massive tax breaks and duty exemption. This has boosted the sale of Stromer powerful. But the state are estimated, 2.3 billion kroner (243 million euros) went taxes through their fingers.
The main problem of power-driven vehicles is the battery. With a Nissan Leaf for 200,000 Norwegian kroner (21,000 euros) to get about 200 kilometers, the Tesla Model S has for 900,000 crowns to 500 kilometers to the socket.
An important prerequisite is that the conversion succeeds on environmentally friendly vehicles, is the view of traffic experts that the tax benefits remain for electric cars.
The German car industry rejects plans Norway. “The drastic measures now plans to the Norwegian government have nothing to do with a market-based approach. Rather, they are paving the way towards an ecological planned economy”, criticized the president of the Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), Matthias Wissmann, in Berlin . A rigid prohibition policy is not taken up, but to economic and social dislocation. A ban on internal combustion engines can for for Germany , “not a role model”.
