Though the video reminds me that I need to head back to school for some remedial Norwegian classes, what a great trip report! It's great to see this oil-producing country take such big strides in adopting EVs. Though having plenty of hydro power and being a "small" country certainly helps, there's still plenty of challenges remaining; though summer overheating might not be much of an issue, those winters can be downright cold!

Aha! An LP owner, I take it? ISTR that was a bridge only on the LP version, but my memory is a bit vague. I've still got all mine, just need to find a working turntable so I can to listen to them.
