Norway, the largest European market for plug-in electric cars, doubled sales year-over-year in October!

In total, 2,972 new all-electric or plug-in hybrid registrations were noted, compared to 1,499 year ago.

All-electric takes two-thirds of the pie (2,045), but plug-in hybrids expanded over 9 times to 927, compared to 101 a year ago.

Total market share stands in October at 22.5% (11.6% year ago). Separately, 41 new electric vans were registered last month.

Funny is how the diesel market share is falling every year thanks to EVs and now already is below 40% in Norway (-7.4% year-over-year).

With an additional 15% market share for conventional hybrids, Norway is at 99 g/km CO2 emissions average for all new passenger cars.

New registrations numbers doesn't tell whole story as Norway draws EVs from other countries in high numbers.

October was a record month with shocking 746 BEVs used-imported registrations (more than all new registrations in the UK that month)! So far this year, Norwegians already imported nearly 4,000 BEVs.
