Electric cars are for the future. The damage CO2 emissions cause to the environment and ozone layer has prompted automakers to change their manufacturing ideologies.
Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, Tesla and a number of other automakers have put plans in place to change the way cars drive and are built. Norway, on the other hand, has been a step ahead of the game when it comes to electric cars.
According to Skeleton Technologies, in March 2014, Norway became the first country where one in every 100 passenger cars on the road was a plug-in electric.

There are numerous advantages to be had from owning an electric car in Norway. For starters, the country has no sales tax on electric cars and drivers of these cars also pay zero road tax.
It seems to just get better from there because EVs can also park in public spots at a free or discounted rate while also having the freedom to drive in the bus lanes as well. They are basically giving you all the incentive to go green.
Climate change is a big problem and having more of the world filled with emission-less cars is a concrete step in the right direction.
