Why Norway is full of Teslas

1 year ago

Oslo is the Tesla capital of the world. Follow Johnny on Facebook at https://goo.gl/l0x5cA for more photos and videos from his travels around the globe for Vox Borders. Instagram: https://goo.gl/CduwlO Subscribe to the Vox Borders newsletter for weekly updates: http://www.vox.com/borders-email I spent a day in Oslo before traveling to Svalbard, and noticed that there were Teslas everywhere. Upon further investigation, I learned that the Norwegian government heavily incentivizes ownership of electric cars: Tesla doesn't pay a sales tax on the models it sells, electric car owners are exempt from automobile tolls, and they can charge their vehicles for free. The catch is that Norway funds these initiatives through its sovereign wealth fund, which is almost entirely comprised of profits from Norway's oil and fossil fuel exports. Vox Borders is a new international series focused on telling the human stories that emerge from lines on the map. Johnny will travel to six border locations to produce a final set of documentaries. While he travels he'll release dispatches on YouTube and Facebook documenting his experiences.
