After posting an all-time record month in January, and a best ever first quarter, Norway plug-in vehicle sales surprised us in March by showing a significant 20.4% drop in new EV registrations.
Still, the 3,357 new passenger plug-in sales is not that bad a result in context, as the overall market also shrunk by 19.7%, so market share stayed steady at 29.6%.
Passenger plug-in registration breakdown:
- BEVs (1,683– down 15.5% and 14.8% market share) + 404 used and 65 vans (62 new and 3 used)
- PHEVs (1,674 – down 24.7% and 14.8% market share)
- FCVs (4)
EVs under performing expectations for the month:
- Nissan LEAF notched 287 sales,
- 74 Renault ZOE sales
- 75 Tesla (42 S and 33 X) sales
