    But as Musk and environmentalists across the globe celebrated Norway’s progressive plan, the conservative party called the article “misleading.”
    “The government and its partners agree on a new step on the way towards a low-emission society…but there is no talk of banning the sale of diesel and petrol vehicles in 2025 as one would be led to believe in Dagens Næringsliv,” the party said in a press release, as quoted by The Local.

    Elvestuen also stepped forward after the report’s publication, clarifying that the parties had only agreed to “set target numbers for how many low- and zero emissions” cars there should be in Norway in 2025. The agreement is aimed at reaching climate goals due to be presented next year as part of the country’s national transport plan.

    “We have not reached an agreement on how to reach the goals,” he said.
