Tesla Outsells All Gas And Diesel Passenger Car Sales Combined In Norway
Tesla sales were higher than all gasoline and diesel passenger car sales combined.
Norway had another great month of plug-in electric car sales in September 2019 as the market share increased to the 2nd best level ever of close to two thirds.
In total, the number of new passenger plug-in car registrations was 7,225, which is 13.1% more year-over-year at 64.8% market share. Many countries would be extremely happy to achieve 4.8%, which makes a 64.8% share kind of seem other-worldly.
Very encouraging is that all-electric car sales continue to increase, although the plug-in hybrids went down for the 15th consecutive month. A significant rate of PHEV decline indicates that consumers lost a lot of interest in this bridging technology and instead look forward to the zero-emission future.
- BEVs: 6,086 (up 26.7%, at 54.5% market share) + 578 ‘used’ + 148 vans (141 new and 7 used) + 0 FCVs
- PHEVs: 1,139 (down 28.1%, at 10.2% market share)

Sales by model
Tesla Model 3 once again shows outstanding sales results in the third month of a quarter - the 2,342 registrations allowed Model 3 to take a 21.0% share in September.
It is unbelievable that the Tesla brand stands for one out of four new passenger car registrations (24.8%). That's two times more than all gasoline passenger car registrations or more than all gasoline (10.3%) and all diesel (12.4%) passenger car registrations.
