The 3 pie charts give information about the proportion of four different energy used in vehicles: electrics, hybrid, petrol, and diesel in Norway in 2008 and 2018, and an estimation for 2028. Overall, the use of petrol decreased significantly, while hybrid and electric registered increased from 2008 to 2018. These trends are expected to continue in 2028. Also, diesel used experienced a rise between 2008 and 2018, but it is estimated to decline in 2028.
In 2008, top of list was petrol at 69%, which was twice times as popular as diesel (30%). However, the decline of the petrol used had plummeted to 39% by 2018, and it is projected to only 11% in 2028, which is the bottom of the list. Diesel was ranked second with 30% in 2008, rising to 46% in 2018. By 2028, diesel is expected to have dropped to 27%.
Hybrid and electric have climbed in a similar trend since 2008. In 2008, only 1%of vehicles used hybrid, and electric wasn’t used at all. There was an increase in hybrid and electric at 11% and 4%, respectively in 2018. By 2028, it is predicted that electric and hybrid have become the first and second popular energy (32% and 30%, respectively).
