Exactly 3,697 electric cars were newly registered in Norway in November. The market share of electric cars among car registrations was 36.9 per cent. The most successful model of all drive types was the VW e-Golf.
Compared to October, 45 electric cars were less new on the road. As in Germany, new registrations of purely electric cars thus remained at the level of the previous month – which also applies to the respective market share. However, the number of purely electric cars in Norway fell by 27.4 per cent compared to the same month last year. Already in October of this year, the electricity sector recorded a decline of 16.9 per cent compared to October 2018.
In addition, there were 3,610 new cars with a hybrid drive. The market share in November of this year was 36 per cent. Compared to the same month last year, this segment recorded an increase of 18.5 per cent. The 3,610 hybrid passenger cars included 2,273 plug-in hybrids. Partly electric cars with plugs were also able to achieve an increase (18.8 per cent) compared to the same month last year. If both are added together, 72.9 per cent of all newly registered passenger cars in Norway in November were equipped with an electric or hybrid drive.
The most successful model across all drive types in November was the VW e-Golf with 806 new registrations. This is followed by the Nissan Leaf (535) and the Audi e-tron quattro (518). In November, the Tesla Model 3 “only” recorded 452 new registrations, but in terms of new registrations (January to November 2019), it clearly leads with 14,432 models across all drive types, according to individual models. Here, the Volkswagen Golf only takes second place with 9,476 new registrations over all drive types.
