The Buddy is a Norwegian electric city car, originally produced by Buddy Electric in the early 2000s, formerly known as Pure Mobility and Elbil Norge AS, based in Økern, Oslo. It was a popular electric car in Norway, with the Buddy and its predecessor, the Kewet, making up 20% of the country's electric car market in 2007. Since its inception in 1991, the combined sales of Kewet and Buddy totaled around 1,500 vehicles by October 2013, with 1,087 registered in Norway.
The Buddy is the sixth generation of the Kewet electric vehicle, which was initially developed in Denmark in 1991 and later acquired by ElBil Norge AS. In 2005, a new model was presented and was first called Kewet Buddy Citi-Jet 6, but is now known simply as the Buddy. In 2008, the first 12 Buddy cars were shipped to Copenhagen, and in 2010, a new version was launched initially as "MetroBuddy," but the "Metro" prefix was later removed.
