Norway to ban petrol and diesel cars by 2025; Tesla CEO Elon Musk welcomes move
Norway's MPs have reportedly agreed to ban or reduce the sale of all cars running on petrol and diesel after 2025, according to rt.com. Tesla CEO Elon Musk lauded the move and tweeted, "Just heard that Norway will ban new sales of fuel cars in 2025. What an amazingly awesome country. You guys rock!!"Norwegian Liberal Party MP Ola Elverstuen told localoutlet Dagens Naeringsliv that his fellow MPs and those of the Progress Party, the Christian Democrats and the Conservative Party have reached a groundbreaking decision to meet the goals.The goals have been outlined in the ambitious national transport plan 2018-2019 which stipulates gradually banning all types of vehicles that harm the environment such as fuel-powered cars, vans, busies and heavy vehicles, according to reports.With 24% of new vehicles being powered by electric drive-trains, Norway already has the highest percentage of electric vehicle market share of any country – meaning that it’s less of a leap for Norway than any other country, but it’s still a big step.
