The majority of new passenger car sales in Norway remain all-electric or plug-in hybrid.

Sales of plug-in electric cars in Norway remain very strong and October 2019 brings the fourth highest market share ever (58.3%).

The total number of new passenger car registrations amounted to 6,106, which is 5.6% less than a year ago, but those small drops happen every few months.

One of the most noticeable changes in the Norwegian market is that for the first time in 15-months, plug-in hybrid car sales increased year-over-year.

  • BEVs: 3,742 (down 16.8%, at 35.7% market share) + 608 ‘used’ + 188 vans (182 new and 6 used) + 0 FCVs
  • PHEVs: 2,364 (up 20.0%, at 22.6% market share)

After 10 months fo 2019, new passenger plug-in car registrations reached 67,624 (up 15.7%), while the average market share was 55.8%.
