Almost 60% of new passenger cars in November were plug-ins.
In November 2019, new passenger plug-in electric car registrations in Norway decreased by 14.7% year-over-year to 5,970. It was the second consecutive month of year-over-year decline.
Because the overall car market shrunk by 18.5% to 10,031, the passenger plug-in segment actually expanded last month to 59.5%, which is out of range for any other country.
The main cause of the plug-in car sales decline is the BEV segment, which year-over-year noted a significant decline. Thankfully, it was partially offset by growing plug-in hybrids, which are slowly rebounding:
- BEVs: 3,697 (down 27.3%, at 36.9% market share) + 439 ‘used’ + 172 vans (161 new and 11 used) + 0 FCVs
- PHEVs: 2,273 (up 18.8%, at 22.7% market share)
After 11 months of 2019, new passenger plug-in car registrations reached 73,594 (up 12.4%), while the average market share was 56.1%.
