At today’s electricity prices, the state pays most of the charging costs for the approximately 500,000 electric vehicle owners in the country to charge their vehicles at home.

“Without electricity subsidies, charging electric vehicles would have been prohibitively expensive,” said Nils Sødal, NAF communications advisor, in a press release.

Volkswagen ID charging. With a spot price of NOK 6 per kilowatt hour (kWh), 0 to 100% 4 at home costs NOK 623 (including electricity tax, VAT, and grid usage charges without electricity subsidies). Price with electrical support is NOK 164.

“With a spot price of NOK 6, electricity subsidies can cover most of the cost of charging,” says Sødal.

Without the help, the NAF believes the price of charging cars at home could have been an obstacle, slowing Norway’s transition to electric vehicles.
