The automotive market is changing towards electrification
Iceland is the 2nd-ranked country in the world (after Norway) with the highest plug-in electric car share in new sales. As of the end of 2018, Iceland closed with a record 3,439 sales (up 15%) and 19% average share!
The share is growing not only because plug-in car sales increased, but also because Iceland experienced a decrease of overall car sales the past year (16%).
The direction of further growth is shown proven December figures, which brought 32% market share (as overall market shrunk by 46%).
