Electric car sales hit a new monthly record in Norway, indicating the Nordic country is on track to reach its 2025 goal of no new fossil-fuel cars being sold.

The oil-rich nation may see all new cars become emission-free as soon as April, based on current trends, the Norwegian Automobile Federation has suggested.
