Norway: Over half of all car sales were plug-ins in March


March marks yet another record month in Norwegian plug-in sales as the country registers a total of 8,034 electric cars and plug-in hybrids. PEVs thus took a marketshare of 55.8 percent, with most of them being all-electric, pointing at yet another record.

5,362 units of all plug-ins sold in Norway in March were all-electric cars, thus gaining a 37 percent marketshare. Bestselling among them was the Nissan Leaf, that booked 2,172 new registrations in a single month – almost three times more (+335%) than previous (record) months.

This means the Leaf held a 15% market share in March and remains on top of the list of Norway’s favourite EVs. Tesla follows after with 727 Model X and 676 Model S having rolled into garages of Norwegians this March. Next up were the BMW i3 with 528 units sold, while Renault managed to sell 347 Zoe EVs.

Overall, electric cars constituted 5.1% of the entire passenger car stock in Norway in 2017, up from 3.7% at the end of 2016. It appears, the trend continues in 2018.
