Sveinongens reply looks correctly convertet to USD.
And notice that all numbers are per unit, so it becomes insanely expensive when you ad upp all numbers. Also notice how expensive a car with much horespower becomes.
The only cars that are tax free here is electric cars. As a result Tesla has sold a lot of new cars to norway. In fact teslas biggest market is in norway.
A bit OT, but maybe intersting for some people.
We also pay roadtax, about 500$ per year. And those money does not go to build or maintain roads (!) They become a part of the anual budget for the state.
We also have to pay toll to drive to major cities, and about 25% of the toll money goes to collect the toll. Only about 75% goes to build and maintain roads. The state can also use the money to build and maintain railways (!)
Also worth mentioning, norway has the poorest road standard in europe. Behind poor countries like albania. This is becuase every road project are only funded a small amount of money per year, instead of one big loan or funding for the whole project. So everything takes a lot of time.
Norway is a small country, with about 5 million inhabitans. So most of the money the state makes comes frm the oil.
Most of the money from oil, the states saves in a fund for "future generations"
Therefor norway is really a relativly poor country compared to how much money the state makes, and they have to put a lot of tax on everything, just to survive financially. Specially car use is therefore very expensive.
The state says that if we use the oil money, norway would be in the same mess as greece and the US.
Compared to normal norwegian salary, we are still the most expensive country in europe when it comes to having a car. Normal norwegian yearly salary is about 60000$ before taxes. Taxes is about 36% of your salary, and everything you buy has 25% VAT on it.
As a result the avarage age of a norwegian car before it is scrapped is about 18 years.
The avarage age of a norwegian car is about 10,5 years. So for every new car here, there is also one that is 20 years old. A lot of old bangers in other words.
That is why we have to be a bit more picky when buying new cars here. Since we can't just go out and buy another one after a year if we are not satisfied.
Thank god for lexus and toyota, that makes relaiable cars that is cheap to maintain.
