In November, EV Sales in Norway Exceed 10% For First Time Ever; Tesla Model S, LEAF and VW e-Up! Shine
Another month passes and for Norway this mean that the cross is hung even higher. 11.9% is the number to beat now for EVs – this is the % of EV market share for new passenger cars sold in Norway in November.
Fully 1,434 EVs were registered last month in Norway, which is a new high, and “just” 1,120 more than in November 2012 when EVs had “just” 2.6% market share.
But that’s not all. As always, Norwegians are on the mass scale of importing used EVs. This time around, 249 were imported in a single month.
The YTD tally stands at 6,609 EVs sold in Norway, which is more than twice in 2012.
As for those imported EVs, the YTD figure is at 1,683 – 1,311 more than in 2012.
There were some electric vans registered in a separate category in Norway too – 7 for November and 165 YTD.
Noteworthy is that the market share for diesel engine passenger cars in Norway fell from 56.6% in November 2012 to 48.6% this November. Maybe it is related to the EV revolution, which devours diesels one by one.
Ok. Lets look at the sales results for new EVs:
Tesla Motors lead the way with 527 Model S sedans registered and 4.4% market share. This was enough for second (corrected) place overall.
Nissan this time is behind Tesla with 512 LEAFs. 4.2% market share and fifth place overall.
Then we have the VW e-up! which is third for EVs! 275 registrations let VW grab #9 in the overall standings. Who’s surprised by that? (Puts hand up)
The rest of the EV pack has less than 35 registrations individually and approximately 120 when grouped together.
