Norway is among the countries with the highest penetration rate of new electric vehicles in the world. Frankly, this country has always been very friendly to new electric cars. Among all European countries, it led the list in terms of the penetration rate (70%) in 2021. Recently, Norwegian lumberjacks began to express their desire for Tesla’s electric pickup Cybertruck on social platforms.
An Instagram user, Knut Skinnes, posted a video showing him and his colleagues transporting trees by three Tesla Model 3 cars. The video also has a caption that reads: “while we wait for the Cybertruck, we have to do our timber work with Model 3 in Norway! Please hurry up. Farmers are waiting across the country.”
