July was another strong month for plug-in electric car sales in Norway, where all-electric cars make up almost two-thirds of all new registrations.
In total, 8,897 new passenger plug-in electric cars were registered last month, which is 33% more than a year ago and 84.7% of the total car market! Other types of vehicles must fight for the remaining 15% (8.4% ICEs, 6.9% HEVs) before they will entirely fade in the coming years.
Stats for the month:
- BEVs: 6,731 (up 53%, at 64.1% market share) + 992 "used" + 193 new vans
- PHEVs: 2,166 (down 5%, at 20.6% market share)
- Total: 8,897 (up 33%, at 84.7% market share)

According to the official data, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 was the third most registered new car for the month, with around 500 units. We guess that the South Korean manufacturer has a long queue of customers waiting for the cars.
This time, Norway's best-selling car year-to-date—the Tesla Model 3—saw only 4 registrations. Despite that, the Model 3 maintains its first place over the Toyota RAV4 (all types).
