    NORWAY GOES TO THE PLUG

    Electric cars: Norway's latest climate-friendly trend

    “A great, national and expensive experiment is underway in Norway where a quarter of all new car sales have 'E' plates -- for electric…By the time the government has waived the whopping 25 percent sales tax and the road registration fee, the sticker price for electric cars can actually be less then their gas or diesel equivalents…Once on the road, other benefits kick in, too. No highway tolls. Free ferry rides. Free charging at government-subsidized plug-in points, where the power comes from clean hydro-sources…The old criticism that electric cars have limited range -- about 150 miles per charge -- becomes a non-issue when you can plug in almost everywhere…Electric cars might work in Norway -- it's a small country, with relatively short driving distances, and plenty of cash to throw at the problem. But what about bigger places with less cash to throw around? The Norwegians say they have learned one thing here: build them, and they will come…So many have come, the government will start phasing out the subsidies…” click here for more
