I wonder whether there is an official statement that some electric car incentives in Norway were stopped, because they were too costly. I came across this document, that states at the very bottom (I had it automatically translated, so maybe it does not) that there might be some loss in tax income. https://www.venstre.no/assets/BilavgiftsgjennomgangENIGHET_0605_2015.pdf

Would be delighted for any suggestions!

  • It was the main reason in The Netherlands - but the answer for Norway may differ. – Sjoerd Aug 6 '19 at 18:47
  • @sjoerd thank you! This is interesting, could you provide any reference please? – canIchangethis Aug 6 '19 at 20:58
  • Seems I was confusing hybrid for electric. I'm afraid that I'm limited to Dutch news articles, e.g. nrc.nl/nieuws/2019/06/26/… . The article mentions that the government limited the fiscal advantage for hybrid cars after a report in 2013. Nevertheless, for full electric cars it's still in place: the article states that the subsidy in 2018 still amounted to 2000 euro per ton CO2 avoided (700 million euro for 25,000 cars - that's nearly 30k per car!). So it's gone for hybrid cars and somewhat limited for electric cars. – Sjoerd Aug 6 '19 at 23:02
