Norway to Ban Sale of All Petrol Cars by 2025

Norway is set to become the first country in the world to ban the sale of all petrol cars by 2025, it has been reported.

The Norwegian media is saying that politicians have reached an agreement to ensure that 100 per cent of all cars will be running on green energy in the next decade.

It is all part of the country's plan to become one of the most 'ecologically progressive' in the world.

This would be significant for Norway as a large propprtion of its funds are said to rely on its petroleum industry.

The move to ban all fossil-fuel based cars is even more ambitious than the Government's Labour Party's proposal that no diesel or petrol car should be sold by 2030. There has been no further mention on the fate of diesel cars.

It follows the announcement that the Norwegians will become the first country in the world to commit to zero deforestation.

News of the potential ban of petrol cars in Norway received a positive response from Elon Musk, the chief executive of USA electric car company Tesla Motors.

He tweeted: "Just heard that Norway will ban new sales of fuel cars in 2025. What an amazingly awesome country. You guys rock!!."

Norway is governed by four parties, who rule together through a system of proportional representation, have also agreed a new climate tax on electricity. Around one in four cars in Norway already run on electricity and it is a heavy producer of renewable energy with more than 99 per cent of electricity covered by hydropower.
