Norway To Ban Petrol & Diesel Cars By 2025


Possible boost for electric car sales


Norway's coalition government plans to outlaw new, petrol and diesel, powered cars by 2025, rumours suggest – but this is not necessarily true. Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv claimed that politicians from the main parties – that rule via proportional representation – agreed such as measure. This rumour then spread quickly courtesy of countless other publications, and social media.

If the Norwegian government proceeds as first reported, new buyers will have to purchase fully electric vehicles such as the Nissan LEAF, Renault Zoe and BMW i3. Hydrogen models such as the Toyota Mirai and Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell might be an option too. The benefit of such cars is they emit no pollution at the point of use. 

Electric car maker welcomes newspaper report

Tesla Motors produces fully electric sports cars and its Chief Executive welcomed the report, The Independent said. Elon Musk stated on Twitter: "Just heard that Norway will ban new sales of fuel cars in 2025. What an amazingly awesome country. You guys rock!!". However, mixed messages have emerged from various sources. 

The Democratic Party and Liberal Party have "collaborated" the Dagens Næringsliv report, the Independent suggested. Furthermore, Liberal spokesman, Ola Elvestuen, told the Norwegian newspaper that "there will only be sales of zero-emission vehicles in 2025". His later comments reported via The Local were less committal, however. 

The Norwegian publication claimed that Mr Elvestuen suggested that the political parties had, in fact, only agreed to "set target numbers" for how many low, and zero-emissions, vehicles should be on the road in 2025 if the nation is to hit its environmental goals. These goals look set to be revealed in 2017, The Local said.

Furthermore, the Conservative Party suggested that the Dagens Næringsliv report was misleading, The Local said. A press release argued: "There is no talk of banning the sale of diesel and petrol cars in 2025; as one would be led to believe in Dagens Næringsliv".

Opposition party criticises government

The opposition Labour Party said that mixed signals from the government amounted to "complete climate chaos". "The agreement is unclear, of little substance (and) the parties cannot even agree on what they agree on", Labour spokesman Terje Lien Aasland suggested.

Electric vehicle capability and infrastructure

It is conceivable that Norway – and other countries – will ban petrol and diesel powered cars on environmental grounds at some point. Realistically, however, electric vehicles first have to evolve to match the range and versatility of their current, more polluting, counterparts. Motorists will also require more support infrastructure such as quick, easily assessable, recharge stations."
