Norwegian’s minister of environment Vidar Helgesen comments on the fact, that more than half of all car registrations in Norway have been hybrid or electric vehicles so far in 2017.

Herbert-Diess-VW“Now, if we go back there, we have to take Tesla seriously, and of course that is what we are doing with our electric strategy.”

Volkswagen boss Herbert Diess had to admit that the success of the Model S has forced the brand to redevelop its luxury saloon Phaeton, which is due in around 2020.
