The Norwegian electric car policy; environmental friendly or an economic disaster?



Prof. Anders Skonhoft (Norwegian University of Science and Technology)


As a result of generous policies to increase the use of electric vehicles (EVs), the sales of EVs in Norway is rapidly increasing. Due to the subsidies, driving an EV implies very low cost to the owner on the margin, probably leading to more driving at the expense of public transport and cycling. Moreover, because most EVs´driving range is low, the policy gives Norwegian households incentives to purchase a second car, again stimulating the use of private cars instead of public transport and cycling. These effects are analysed in light of possible benefits of utilizing EVs versus conventional cars.
