Buddy - an electric vehicle pioneer

The story began more than 20 years ago. It started in Denmark and continued in Norway.

Today Buddy can boast of over 1.100 vehicles on Norwegian roads.


Buddy Electric AS is founded on the experience and expertise gathered through all these years. Behind the newly established company are loyal electric vehicle enthusiasts, developers and investors.




Buddy Electric intends to keep its unique position as a flagship of electric vehicles for city use - no emission, a minimum of space, energy efficient, easy to manoeuvre and particularly easy to park. It’s noticeable in the traffic, it’s obviously an electric vehicle and it inspires a friendly smile or two.


Buddy Electric AS is continuing assembly of the Buddy at Økern in Oslo. The vehicle will be produced in small series, which will give Buddy owners the opportunity to influence the appearance of their own Buddy, giving the vehicle a personal touch. 


At the same time we believe that it is important for the Buddy concept to find partners with whom we can cooperate to create a larger production and a larger market. This is not because the Norwegian market is too small – Buddys can be observed all over Oslo, outside shops, schools and offices, with company logos on the doors, with skis or golf clubs on the back and even with a small trailer from time to time! And there is room for plenty more. We are looking for partners because we wish to increase and share the Buddy experience with new drivers at home and abroad. We must grow bigger and continue to improve.


The large well established automobile manufacturers, aware that today’s cars are no longer ideal in today’s city traffic, are also searching for new concepts, which are more suited to these needs. Buddy however is already there! We have a head start and we are going to use it!
