Abstract: Norway has the highest number of electric cars per capita in the world. In June 2013, Norway reached 13,000 electric cars in a country of five million inhabitants. The experiences from the members of The Norwegian Electric Vehicle Association can give decision makers valuable input. In this paper, we present and analyse the results from the 2012 and 2013 Norwegian electric car user survey. In the 2013 survey, 1,858 EV users contributed with their experiences and opinions. The typical Norwegian EV user is a middle-aged family father with higher education and income, and he owns a Nissan LEAF as one of two cars. He drives his electric car on a daily basis instead of a traditional petrol or diesel car. In order to get more people to buy an electric car, the EV users highlight longer range and predictable EV policy as the two most important requirements.
