The cost of Oslo's municipal electric car chargers will sharply increase when the budget for the capital is adopted, the newspaper Avisa Oslo reports.


Most prices will likely almost triple, and the lowest price is set to be 35 kroner per hour, the newspaper reports. If the budget is adopted as expected, the new prices will be introduced as early as Thursday.


The municipality started charging residents for charging their electric vehicles in 2019. Prices were then set at between 5 and 15 kroner per hour, depending on the number of kilowatts the charger could deliver and the time of day.

Thus, as the newspaper Dagsavisen points out, for regular charging late in the evening and at night, prices have increased sevenfold in less than four years.

Oslo Municipality planned to build 200 charging stations this year. However, up to September this year, they have only managed to build ten.

The expected new prices can be found in the two tables below:
