    Norways gets almost all their electricity from hydro-power. It is 93% of their electricity. They get 4% from other renewables.

    No Mexicans, but plenty of Arabs and Blacks. You have clearly never been to Norway.

    Europe will do better than America in the New World Order to be sure, but man do almost none of them have any clue as to what is coming.

    As I said, the Norwegians have put in more effort than almost anyone else, but they are not magical. We could do the same.

    Do you know any Norwegians? I do, I have family there. They're not happy. This electric car shit isn't the only reason but yeah, we don't need this here because of the government intervention it invites, in fact requires.
    Why Trump? Because Fuck You that's why.

    I know several Norwegians. They tend to be successful and happy. I am sure your racist relatives are complete failures, and are not happy.

    Look up the definition. You are still a fucking inbred no matter what you can copy and paste.

    Exemption from 25% VAT on purchase (2001-)
    No annual road tax (1996-2021). Reduced tax from 2021. Full tax from 2022..
    No charges on toll roads or ferries (1997- 2017).
    Maximum 50% of the total amount on ferry fares for electric vehicles (2018-)
    Maximum 50% of the total amount on toll roads (2019)
    Free municipal parking (1999- 2017)
    Parking fee for EVs was introduced locally with an upper limit of a maximum 50% of the full price (2018-)
    Access to bus lanes (2005-). New rules allow local authorities to limit the access to only include EVs that carry one or more passengers (2016)
    50 % reduced company car tax (2000-2018). Company car tax reduction reduced to 40% (2018-) and 20 percent from 2022.
    Exemption from 25% VAT on leasing (2015)
    Fiscal compensation for the scrapping of fossil vans when converting to a zero-emission van (2018)

    Like every bad idea the Left has, the only way they can get people to do it is to bribe them with piles of OPM.
    Most of those regulations began well before the advent of electric cars, Einstein.

    So? What's that got to do with their effect on people's buying habits more recently? If the government incentivizes something, you generally get lots more of it. Aside from that, the only one on that list that was in place before the current crop of electric cars started is no purchase / import tax. By the mid-90's there were about a half-dozen electric cars being produced in small numbers by a variety of manufacturers. Most didn't last in production long, but they were being produced.
