Norwegian Convenience Market and EV Inspiration Safari in Oslo, Norway
Insight Research will be hosting a Norwegian Convenience Market and EV Inspiration Safari in Oslo, Norway this September 11-13th.
Norway is moving faster into electric vehicle adoption than any other country globally. Today, EVs command a 26% share of sales. Combined with the 20% share held by hybrid plug-in vehicles, then almost half of the total market is dominated by some kind of electricity. This makes the Norwegian government’s 2025 target of 100% electric cars look increasingly achievable.
Nobody really knows how fast the EV sector is going to grow outside markets like Norway. In our view it always pays to go and see things for yourself. Our Norwegian convenience market and EV safari will review the latest convenience store format innovation from Norway’s world class retailers and then relate this to growing EV market shares. Our deep dive into the market will also explain how incentives are impacting drivers, how the habits of a second wave of EV owners are different and changing, the importance of charging networks, governmental and municipal EV use, EVs in the transport sector and global projections for EVs.
Roadside retailers need to think carefully and positively about future strategy. Our site visits will be hosted by senior representatives from Circle K, Reitan Group and Deli de Luca. Some, like Circle K believe that with the right EV strategy, combined with rapid innovation in foodservice and the latest technology, there are considerable opportunities for growth.
In some ways, convenience businesses in Norway believe they need to work harder to be ‘businesses with purpose’, facilitating the future needs of Norwegian consumers in the right ways. As Jacob Schram says in our Retail Vision TV video:
“If we can turn into a company that actually with EVs provides green energy, with food provides more fresh, healthy options, helping people with their eating habits on the go, less sugar, less fat … and we can be the channel for moving that, that’s great, that’s a higher purpose at the same time as it creates business.”
