Dear MEL Topic Readers,

For the first time ever, electric cars outsold gas and diesel vehicles in Norway

An electric car is powered by an electric motor or motors, using energy usually stored in rechargeable batteries. Unlike conventional gasoline or diesel engine cars, electric cars emit no exhaust gas from the onboard source of power. Numbers of countries are promoting electric cars to replace air-polluting fossil-fuel powered cars with tax credits, subsidies, and other incentives, such as designated parking space and discounted tolls and parking fees.

Norway is one of the most aggressive countries to promote zero-emission vehicles with a goal to stop selling new gas and diesel passenger cars by 2025. Since the Nordic country generates more electricity than its domestic consumption by renewable energy sources, such as water, wind and geothermal, the whole nation is moving in top gear toward the zero-emission environment. And in March, electronic cars outsold gas and diesel cars first time ever. Guess what drove the electric car sales? Tesla Model 3. It was the biggest single car model sales in a single month and accounted for over half of all the electric car sales of the month.

Enjoy reading and predict how soon the world will see more zero-emission cars on the road than others.
