Norway plug-in electric vehicle sales again shine in May, notching a strong 31.7% increase, while hitting a near-best result of 4,339 sales. The e-market share also looks pretty awesome at 30.6%!
Opel Ampera-e arrives in Norway!
Passenger plug-in registration breakdown:
- BEVs (2,175 – up 52.8% and 15.3% market share) + 504 used and 39 vans (32 new and 7 used)
- PHEVs (2,164 – up 15.6% and 15.3% market share)
- FCVs (2)
The top two selling plug-ins for the month were both German EVs: the "new" Volkswagen e-Golf (36 kWh) in first (457) and the BMW i3 continues to perform well and finishes at #2 (410).
Third we find the good old Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (343), followed by the Volkswagen Passat GTE (340) and two models tie for fifth: Volkswagen Golf GTE & Nissan LEAF (both 272).
Apparently some brake issues that interrupted Renault ZOE sales in April pushed into May, as just 108 new registrations were made last month.
Tesla Model S & Model X sales stood at 88 and 138 respectively.
