In December 2016, Tesla settled a lawsuit with over 100 Model S P85D owners in Norway, who had accused them of inflating power numbers in the car’s marketing. Tesla settled for about $8,600 for each owner, or they could get some car upgrades or other forms of relief. Now, nearly 80 more Norwegian customers say they…
It’s another gorgeous day near Hallingdal, Norway and you’re just trucking along in your big red rig. It’s the middle of the afternoon, and you’re making your way toward your final delivery for the day, thinking that it would be nice to get home to enjoy a sensible meal, and then OH MY GOD DON’T HIT THAT KID!
Top Gear has a long and storied history of pissing off other countries, and the new hosts seem to be continuing this proud tradition. Evidence isn’t on the show’s side this time as speeds well over the limit—more than 150 mph in one case—were captured in Norway’s Atlantic Ocean Tunnel on Wednesday during the filming…
Norway’s Stad peninsula is a notoriously difficult place for ships to pass through. As many as 100 days a year of hurricane weather create huge, choppy waves that give ships a very hard time sailing the coastline, delaying schedules and putting crews at risk. The Norwegian government’s solution? Build a tunnel…
Norway is basically the land of Tesla thanks to a massive effort by the government to incentivize EV sales, with Elon Musk’s company gladly supplying the cars. But Tesla may have to give something back to its Norwegian customers thanks to a dispute over the Model S P85D’s advertised power output.
The F-16 Viper, a fighter jet used by numerous countries around the world including Norway, is capable of flying at more than 1,000 miles per hour. So when a patient in northern Norway needed lifesaving equipment and need it quickly, the Norwegian Air Force came to the rescue.
A trio of B-52H Stratofortresses and some 200 support personnel from Barksdale AFB in Louisiana are headed to Spain. From there, the iconic bombers will take part in Norway’s large-scale international military exercise dubbed “Cold Response.”
The USMC is in Norway for exercise Cold Response and for other cold weather combat and logistical training with their Norwegian counterparts. During their deployment, Marine tankers get to train for fighting in frigid environments, where their tracks that usually can take them nearly anywhere can turn their tanks into…
Oslo, the capital city of Norway, has announced plans to permanently cut almost 350,000 motorists out of the center of the city by 2019, while increasing public transport and restructuring to better accompany cyclists and pedestrians.
Norway has a noise pollution problem - one so bad the WHO claims it is responsible for 150 cardiovascular-related deaths per year. A new group of researchers is looking to predict and map noise pollution before it even exists.
Gatebil is Norway’s series of events celebrating the ability of hundreds and hundreds of horsepower to absolutely vaporize a full set of tires. Two brothers perfectly embody the scene.
Since 2008, Norway has offered the most generous incentives for electric vehicle buyers. The result: 50,000 EVs on the road as of last month – almost a quarter of all new cars on the road. The problem: the country has lost a massive chunk of revenue and there are Tesla traffic jams. Whoops.
It’s cool and all to go sideways in some old Nissan coupe. It’s absolutely mental to try the same in the last aircooled 911 Turbo.
Alright, so it's a Norwegian TV series, but if you die in Norway you die in real life so I'll count it. And since The Heavy Water War focuses on a uniquely Norwegian facet of one of the less-well known events of World War II, you might even say that it gives it an especially pertinent focus.
The Tesla Model S has a bunch of great things going for it, but there's definitely a weird facet of it's sales strategy that is a little funky. The car's second largest market, in the entire world, is Norway. Little, tiny Norway. In fact, it's the best-selling car there overall. And here's the reason why.
More than that, you're going to want to hear it.
Here, in concise form, is everything that (probably) went through cameraman Steffen Tronstad's head while trying to shoot the Norwegian Rally Championship:
Back in October, we were rather surprised to find out that the demand for a used Tesla Model S in Norway was so strong, they were going for more money than new ones. Oh yeah, and it was the best-selling car there. Turns out that trend is continuing.
This picture of a Subaru parked in the middle of a lake isn't a Photoshop. It's very real and here's how it was done.
