It's amazing to see nearly half of the Norwegian market opt for plug-ins:

  • BEVs 3,850 (up 46.6%%, good for a 28.6% market share) + 1,053 used + 90 vans (74 new and 16 used) + 6 FCV
  • PHEVs 2,674 (up 39.1%, good for 19.8% market share)
The big surprise however is that the new record was mostly influenced by deliveries of more than 2,000 Tesla cars!
  • 1,007 Model S
  • 996 Model X
September's result was Tesla's best to date:
