Abstract: A conditional logit model is estimated on Norwegian data for 2010. The data contains all purchases of cars for the period January to July. The estimates imply that taxes on CO2 emission have a negative impact on the choice of car and the model is used in simulations to demonstrate how purchases of cars can be shifted to types of car with lower emissions. We demonstrate that the total expected emission of CO2 is reduced when taxes on CO2 increases
