Buddy

Information about Buddy

The Buddy, a hallmark of Norwegian innovation in electric city cars, was born from the evolution of the Kewet, a pioneering electric vehicle first developed in 1991 in Denmark. Over the years, production shifted to Norway under the aegis of Elbil Norge AS, later rebranded as Buddy Electric. The car stood out for its simplicity and functional design, ideal for urban commuting with a modest range and no-frills technology.

Despite its discontinuation in 2013, the Buddy marked significant milestones, including dominating 20% of Norway’s electric vehicle market in 2007. As the sixth iteration of the Kewet, the Buddy evolved into a practical solution for city mobility, though it faced limitations like a lack of modern safety features and a relatively short driving range. Its production peaked with ambitions for expansion, including plans for a factory in Portugal, reflecting a strong yet brief success story in the niche of electric urban transport.
