Norwegian political parties propose ban on new gas-powered cars beginning 2025

According to an Electrek report, a tentative agreement was reached by four leading political parties in Norway last week, for the elimination of the sale of fossil fueled automobiles by the year 2025.

The report indicates that, in some countries and cultures, the push towards electrified vehicles will be easier as well as faster as compared to other countries.

With four main Norwegian political parties apparently in favor of laws which would ban the sales of new gasoline-powered cars beginning 2025, it is apparent that the enactment of the pending legislation will make Norway the first country to authorize the transition from cars equipped with gas engines, and necessitate zero emissions for all new car sales.

Though the tentative agreement reached by the four top Norwegian political parties is still to be officially approved by the government, the Electrek report has pointed out that since Norway is one of the countries considering vehicle electrification, the laws proposed by the political parties have the best chance of being enacted.

Moreover, with electric cars accounting for 24 percent of the new vehicles sold in Norway, the e-vehicle concept is not as revolutionary or atypical in Norway as it is in some of the other countries.
