June didn't disappoint in Norway as passenger plug-in electric car registrations surged to the second-best result ever of 8,867 (up 11.2% year-over-year).
Market share once again exceeded half and amounted to 57.8%, while diesel was pushed back to 13.5% (16.0% for gasoline and 12.7% for conventional hybrids).
The sales could be way higher, but plug-in hybrids currently are in retreat, at least until new higher-range models will hit the market.
- BEVs: 7,427 (up 87.1%, 48.4% market share) + 567 ‘used’ + 196 vans (182 new and 14 used) + 1 FCVs
- PHEVs: 1,440 (down 64%, 9.4% market share)

Tesla Takes 1/4 of the market!
Another huge wave of Tesla Model 3 deliveries translated into 3,012 new registrations (10,560 YTD), which is good for 19.5% of all sales for the month (13.5% for the six months).
Tesla brand (#1 in Norway) celebrates big success, as a total of 3,760 registrations in June is 24.5% of all sales! Average for six months is 16.1% (12,605).
For comparison, the 2nd highest Volkswagen Golf (BEV and ICE) was at 958 and 5,507 YTD, which means that the Model 3, with high probability, already secured the win for 2019, six months in advance.
