挪威電動車銷量超越燃油車

 According to new data on January 5th, the sale of electric cars in Norway overtook those powered by petrol, diesel and hybrid engines last year. Norway has become the first country in the world in which 50 percent of all new cars it sold are electric. The country aims to hit the 100% mark by 2025.
 The Norwegian Road Federation (OFV) said electric vehicles accounted for 54.3% of new car sales in 2020, up from 42.4% a year earlier. German auto-maker Volkswagen replaces Tesla as the top battery-vehicle producer.
 Norway has set a goal of eliminating the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2025. Meanwhile fully electric vehicles are tax-free and receive other government subsidies. Last year, the loss of this tax revenue reached about $2.3 billion.
 The Nordic nation gets most of its electric energy from hydroelectric dams, so the shift helps reduce air pollution and climate change.
 “We’re definitely on track to reach the 2025 target,” OFV Chief Executive said.

根據一月五日公布的新數據,挪威二○二○年的電動車銷量超越汽油、柴油車及油電混合車,成為全球第一個電動車銷量占新車總數一半以上的國家。挪威的目標是在二○二五年底前,所有新車都是電動車。
 挪威道路交通資訊委員會表示,去年電動車銷量占新車銷量的百分之五十四點三,高於前年的百分之四十二點四。此外,德國福斯超越特斯拉,成為最大的電動車生產商。
 挪威政府規畫在二○二五年底前停止銷售汽油車與柴油車,並讓所有的電動車享有免稅優惠及政府補貼。去年,政府因此短少了二十三億美元的汽車稅收。
 挪威的電力主要靠水力發電,電動車的普及有助於減少空氣汙染及氣候變遷帶來的衝擊。
 「相信我們能達成二○二五年禁售燃油車的目標。」挪威道路交通資訊委員會的執行長說。
