I invested a day in Oslo prior to taking a trip to Svalbard, and observed that there were Teslas all over. Upon additional examination, I found out that the Norwegian federal government greatly incentivizes ownership of electrical automobiles: Tesla does not pay a sales tax on the designs it offers, electrical automobile owners are exempt from auto tolls, and they can charge their lorries totally free. The catch is that Norway funds these efforts through its sovereign wealth fund, which is nearly completely consisted of make money from Norway’s oil and nonrenewable fuel source exports.
