Norway has reached a major milestone of 100,000 all-electric cars on its roads this month (roughly 3% of the country's total fleet), which is fantastic result in country with population of just 5.2 million.

Now the goal by 2020 is 400,000 BEVs.

Including plug-in hybrids, Norway is now on track for 150,000 plug-in registrations.

The milestone – which represents a giant leap towards road transport relieved from CO2 and NOx emissions – was celebrated with a bundle of both past and present makes and models – like the bestselling Nissan LEAF (pictured), Volkswagen e-Golf and Tesla Model S.

All-electric cars represents more than 15% of new car sales in Norway, and together with plug-in hybrids, electrified sales account for ~30% this year.

The goal for 2025 is to reach 100% market share for BEVs.

Norway for now is well beyond the reach of any other country in terms of electric car salesm and the Norwegian EV Association believes that Norwegian electric vehicle policy has a major impact globally in the long term:

"Norway inspires other countries to implement similar measures, and we show the international automotive industry how to create consumer demand for electric cars. We get ever more proof supporting this notion», says Christina Bu, Secretary General of the Norwegian EV Association."
