The Norwegian electric car controversy: The arguments and some empirical illustrations
MetadataShow full item record
In this master thesis I have reviewed and discussed some of the arguments made in the Norwegian EV policy debate. Further, I have applied binary choice models on a cross-sectional data set of 1,722 Norwegian EV-owners, to shed some light on certain research questions raised by economists in the field. The highlighted questions in this master thesis include to what extent the policy has stimulated the EV being an additional car to the household, and have EV privileges had any significant effect on EV owners’ propensity to drive more or use less public transport after acquiring an EV.
