  9. in 10 years it will be:

    1. Mercedes 190e
    2. BMW 3 e36
    3. VW Golf 4
    4. Audi RS4
  10. Sweden has a good minority who keep older American cars running.

    Have to admit that list is very patriotic. And tells a bit about low tax on cars.

  11. I love this video where the guy is walking down a street in Oslo and basically every car in sight is electric or hybrid:

    Scandinavians are the master race. While the rest of the world is still arguing if global warming is real or not, these guys are at the next level.

    Perhaps the energy sector in Norway has something to do with their policies regarding electric cars. Norway has more installed hydropower capacity than what the country can consume, although their electricity consumption is very high per capita, 3x the EU average and twice the US consumption per capita.

    Here's a pie chart from 2011:


    Most of the hydroelectric plants in Norway are quite old and were mostly funded by government money ages ago. Which means that the electric companies in Norway have access to 31GW of electricity from reliable and regulatable carbon-neutral sources at minimal cost.

    Hydropower output in Norway is only expected to increase in the coming years due to increasing rainfall thanks to the climate change, and when new technologies make untapped resources commercially viable. Straits and fjords in Norway have some of the strongest tidal currents on Earth, and the North Sea isn't famous for its pleasant and mild weather (offshore wind energy and wave power). Yearly rainfall in Norway is the single most important factor determining electricity prices in the Nord Pool-area (Nordics-Iceland+Estonia and Lithuania), and even affects the prices in Germany and the Netherlands.

    In this kind of environment it makes a lot of sense to instruct the public to heat their apartments and water with electricity, and to drive electric automobiles. The same applies to industry. The oil they can just sell to Saudis or whatever.

    In a country such as Finland where there's no practically unlimited source of free energy, where we need to juggle with hydro, imported electricity, wind, solar, nuclear, fossil fuels and biofuels from various sources, it's much more difficult to come up with solutions that make sense environmentally, financially and politically. Example: investments in biofuel plants just became a lot less viable because of the new way EU calculates carbon emissions and forests as carbon sinks. Forest biomass has been steadily growing in this country since 1977 and is still growing but that doesn't seem to matter in politics.
