Can't really speak for Norway, but I guess it's the same as over here: no. Taxes on fuel are also very high (>75% of the price) so big engines are not very popular.

The price of the 2nd hand car also remains inflated, higher than neighboring countries without the rip-off taxes.The funny thing is, because a foreign buyer can get (part of) that tax back when they import a car from the Netherlands, it can work out cheaper for them to buy a car over here
