The installation of the 1,000th ABB fast charger in Norway represents a key milestone for the country in its ambitious journey towards achieving a zero-emission economy.
Norway’s ambitious plans to move away from fossil fuels include targets to cut CO2 emissions by as much as 55 per cent by 2030 compared to 1990, and for all new cars sold from 2025 to be zero-emission. The policy is supported by generous incentives for electric vehicles (EVs), such as exemption from purchasing tax and reduced toll road fees and ferry fares.
ABB has played a key role in helping to enable Norway’s transition to a zero-emission society, and the recent installation of the 1,000th high-power charger in the western city of Bergen is continued evidence of ABB’s commitment to the achievement of ambitious sustainability goals. The Terra HP is capable of delivering 200km of range in as little as eight minutes.
