Free Public Parking For Life With An Electric Car

Samuel Reason | July 10th, 2018

When it comes to being environmentally friendly and respecting pollution emission targets, no countries do it better than Scandinavians. Possibly it is their deep heritage and culture of being in touch with nature, from the time of the old gods. Norway is no different, one of the most environmentally friendly countries in the world. They even have a frozen ark project that could repopulate the world if ever needed.

What is even more interesting when it comes to Norway is their fabulous incentives for electric cars. In fact, they are so good, that debates are going on around them being too good. Everyone wants to own an electric car in Norway, imagine free public parking for life. That is the sort of bonus you get for driving an electric car in Norway. They have some of the most generous electric car incentives ever seen.

For example, electric vehicle buyers are exempt from paying any value added tax (VAT) or any purchase tax. That may not sound that much but remember in Norway taxes are very high, these two taxes can result in an increase of 50% in price. But the benefits do not even stop there, they just keep coming.

No need to pay any road tolls or any fees to use a tunnel, all that is free just for buying an electric car. And the best yet? No need to pay for any ferry rides either. Yes, by driving an electric car you receive free ferry rides, free parking, and free charging.

And then the icing on the cake? The freedom to drive in bus lanes whenever you need! In fact, these incentives have seen Norwegians buying up electric cars in the thousands, so many that the government is having to consider rolling these incentives back. That may not really matter though because when you add all the incentives together, even the expensive Tesla Model S comes down to the equivalent price of buying a Prius. Such a great deal that no one can resist it.
