Mercedes-Benz EQC is now the #20 best-selling car in Norway for the first five months of 2020.
Plug-in electric car sales in Norway decreased in May 2020, but by only 14% year-over-year, which does not sound like much these days in Europe.
The total number of new passenger plug-in car registrations of 5,249 translated to 65.6% of the total market - a lot more than the 46.5% a year ago, as the overall market was falling quicker (by 39%).
Stats for the month:
- BEVs: 3,444 (down 26%, at 43.1% market share) + 264 ‘used’ + 86 vans (83 new and 3 used) + 0 FCVs
- PHEVs: 1,805 (up 25%, at 22.6% market share)
- Total: 5,249 (down 14%, at 65.6% market share)
