In June, Norway set several new all-time plug-in EV sales records, reaching a market share of 42%.

Unfortunately July didn't manage to reach quite the same level of success  ... but it was still the best July result ever, so we can't complain too much.

For the month, new passenger plug-in vehicle registrations hit 3,968, which is nearly 34% more than a year ago.  Plug-ins represented 34.6% of the total automotive market in Norway.

  • BEVs (1,821 – up 65.1%, good for 15.9% market share) + 522 used and 30 vans (21 new and 7 used)
  • PHEVs (2,147 – up 15.1%, good for 18.7% market share)
  • FCVs (3 - no comment necessary)
Here are several top BEV results:
  • VW e-Golf: it was first, but we don't have the exact sales splits yet
  • Nissan LEAF: 334
  • BMW i3: 277
  • Renault ZOE: 250
  • Opel Ampera E: 200
  • Tesla Model X: 103
  • Tesla Model S: 57
The Opel Ampera-e has now reached 834 registrations through the end of July, so our expectation is for the 238 mile EV to cross into 4 digits by the end of August - although GM has forecast that their might be some inventory shortages in the second half of 2017 before production really gets into the 'swing of things' in 2018.
