Tesla took a month off and noted just 5 registrations in total.

Plug-in electric car sales in Norway doubled year-over-year last month to the best April ever and over 80% market share.

The number of new passenger plug-in registrations amounted to 10,545 (up 104% year-over-year), which is the 7th 10,000+ result in Norway's history.

Both battery-electric cars and plug-in hybrid cars are growing at a very high rate, but the BEV share is more than two times higher.

Stats for the month:

  • BEVs: 7,229 (up 97%, at 54.9% market share) + 737 ‘used’ + 691 vans (687 new and 4 used)
  • PHEVs: 3,316 (up 122%, at 25.2% market share)
  • Total: 10,545 (up 104%, at 80.1% market share)

Models

Volkswagen ID.4 has made a huge splash in April with 1,824 new registrations and a market share of 13.9%. The ID.4, as a new model, probably has a long queue of orders to unload first.

It was enough to become also the top model year-to-date with 2,684 units (5.4% share) and third place overall (behind Toyota RAV4 and Volvo XC40 - all versions), and slightly ahead of the Tesla Model 3.

The Model 3 on the other hand, after an outstanding end of the first quarter, noted just 4 new registrations (no shipment, we guess), so now it's 4th YTD (2,570 total).
