    Norway’s internal combustion engine car sales (petrol and diesel) are crashing
    to now just a handful per month, and the rest of the world will follow faster than you might think.

    The country has been leading electric vehicle adoption for years and it aims for all new car sales to be electric by 2025.

    In 2020, all-electric cars have hit a record 54% market share of Norway’s total new cars sales in 2020.

    Lately, EV market shares have increased not only with more electric cars hitting the market but also because of gasoline and diesel car sales crashing.

    Last month, petrol cars had a 4.8% market share and diesel cars had a 4.7% market share, representing fewer than 1,500 vehicle sales in March

    That’s less than half the market share that the internal combustion engine vehicles had during the same period last year.

    With many new all-electric models hitting the market in the next few years, including higher-volume EVs, Norway is expected to hit its target of electric- only sales by 2025 without any issue.
