In August, new passenger plug-in electric car registrations almost doubled in Norway, reaching a new market share record.
In total, 14,410 new passenger plug-in electric cars were registered last month, which is 90% more than a year ago and 87.7% of the total car market (a new all-time record)!
Those outstanding results were possible thanks to a high number of all-electric car registrations. BEVs for the very first time have exceeded 70% market share, setting a new record of 71.9%.
Stats for the month:
- BEVs: 11,811 (up 107%, at 71.9% market share) + 1,072 "used" + 494 new vans
- PHEVs: 2,599 (up 38%, at 15.8% market share)
- Total: 14,410 (up 90%, at 87.7% market share)
New passenger plug-in car registrations in Norway – August 2021
So far this year, over 92,000 new passenger plug-ins were registered, which is over 83% of the total market. The remaining part is shared by conventional and hybrid models.
- BEVs: 66,612 (up 73%, at 60.1% market share)
- PHEVs: 26,046 (up 61%, at 23.5% market share)
- Total: 92,658 (up 69%, at 83.6% market share)
If we take a look at the registrations by powertrain, we can see how dominant the position of plug-ins is right now (87.7% in August).
All-electric cars noted 71.9%, while conventional vehicles just 7.8% (4.6% gasoline, 3.2% diesel). Hybrids took 4.5%.
The Tesla Model Y made a big splash in Norway and, as expected, was the most registered model in August.
But not only Tesla did great. The Ford Mustang Mach-E notes 907 registrations, ahead of Volkswagen ID.4 (861), Tesla Model 3 (774), Volkswagen ID.3 (649).
Among the best-selling models is also the Hyundai Ioniq 5 (631 and 1,404 YTD, which translated into #20 place YTD).
In total, more than half of the top 20 models YTD in Norway are stand-alone all-electric cars.
