In Norway, 9 Of The 10 Best-Selling Cars Were Electrified In 2016
Passenger plug-in electric car sales in Norway increased last month by 12.2 percent to 3,915, reaching 33.2 percent market share.
Passenger registration breakdown:
- BEVs (1,862 – down 3.4 percent and 15.8 percent market share) + 503 used and 42 vans (32 new and 10 used)
- PHEVs (2,053 – up 31.3 percent and 17.4 percent market share)
- FCVs (2)
Combining plug-ins with conventional hybrids (14.6 percent) we get 47.6 percent market share for general electrification. Conventional powertrains shrank to 52.5 percent, in part because of the collapse of diesel to 28.5 percent.
Perhaps most interesting, the OFV (see full report here) says that the best-selling conventional-fuel model was 9th in new passenger car sales in Norway, while the best an ICE could do among used imports was 10th!
Among best selling BEVs were:
- BMW i3 – 497
- Nissan LEAF – 408
- Renault ZOE – 279
Tesla had slow month, with 55 Model S and 43 Model X registrations.
