A total of exactly 126,953 new passenger cars were registered in Norway in 2023, including 104,590 BEVs and 10,169 plug-in hybrids. The overall passenger car market shrank by 27.2 per cent compared to 2022 (specifically 47,363 fewer passenger cars). In comparison, the BEV market lost slightly less: 24.4 per cent. The PHEV market grew slightly to 36.9 per cent. The result is that the share of BEV passenger cars in the total new registration market has risen slightly from 2022 to 2023: from 79.3 to 82.4 per cent.

December was rather weak by Norwegian standards: 8,957 electric cars were added last month (-72.6 per cent compared to the very strong December 2022), which corresponds to a 73.6 per cent share of pure electric cars in total new passenger car registrations.

The most successful model by far was the Tesla Model Y, which recorded 1,366 new registrations in Norway in December and 23,085 for the entire year. This gives the Model Y a market share of 18 per cent for 2023 (after 10 per cent in 2022). The VW ID.4 follows far behind with 6,614 new registrations cumulated over the year (5.2 per cent market share), the Skoda Enyaq with 5,740 new registrations (4.5 per cent) and the Toyota bZ4X with 5,395 new registrations (4.2 per cent).

In December, the Toyota bZ4X was in second place behind the Tesla Model Y with 792 registrations. In second place were the Volvo XC40 with 524 and the Ford Mustang Mach-E with 458 new registrations. The ID.4 and the Skoda Enyaq only recorded 269 and 280 sales, respectively, in the previous month., (models, in Norwegian)
