The years go by and Norway continues to set an example on the subject of electromobility. If individuals are fond of electric models, professionals do even better. 88% of taxi drivers have chosen an electric model in 2023.
Taxi drivers love electric in Norway
In Norway, 88% of new taxis put on the roads in 2023 were 100% electric. This is even better than all new registrations in the country. Over the past year, 82.4% of all new cars sold were electric in Norway. There are even some Norwegian cities where all new taxis purchased in 2023 were battery models.
Pollution: Norway takes a radical decision for trucks
Indeed, this is the case in Bergen and Stavanger. Other large cities are also doing very well. In Trondheim, the proportion of new electric taxis was 97%. In Oslo, the Norwegian capital, it reaches 90%. This rise in power of taxis in Norway can be explained. In the Scandinavian country, district authorities have set a deadline by which all taxi licenses must be electric.
It’s (again) the Tesla Model Y that takes the cake
And according to you, what was the best-selling model among taxis? No surprise: it was the Tesla Model Y that recorded the most registrations over the past year. The best-selling car of the year is also popular with taxi drivers. There is space inside and in the trunk, the autonomy is more than sufficient and the image sent to customers is excellent.
In Norway, 50% of mail is delivered by electric vehicles
In 2023, 104,590 new electric cars were delivered to the country. There is a high tax in Norway on the purchase of polluting gasoline and diesel vehicles. This also explains the rapid shift to electric models in recent years. The country has 3,000 public charging stations and 7,753 fast charging stations. They are rather well scattered throughout the territory.
