In November, the number of new passenger car registrations in Norway increased by 21.9% year-over-year to 15,274, mostly thanks to plug-in electric cars, which keep growing.
According to the official data, some 13,927 new plugs-ins were registered during the month (up 39% year-over-year). The market share was near a record high at 91.2%!
The remaining few percent of the market belong to non-rechargeable hybrids (3.8%), diesel (2.7%) and gasoline cars (2.3%).
We must note that while the all-electric cars were up 60% year-over-year, the plug-in hybrids once again noted a year-over-year decrease (third consecutive month) by 11%.
Stats for the month:
- BEVs: 11,274 (up 60.3%, at 73.8% market share) + 1,116 "used" + 432 new vans
- PHEVs: 2,653 (down 11.1%, at 17.4% market share)
- Total: 13,927 (up 39%, at 91.2% market share)
New passenger plug-in car registrations in Norway – November 2021
So far this year, over 133,000 new passenger plug-ins were registered, which is over 85% of the total market. The remaining part is shared by conventional and hybrid models.
- BEVs: 99,948 (up 58%, at 64.2% market share)
- PHEVs: 33,460 (up 35%, at 21.5% market share)
- Total: 133,408 (up 52%, at 85.7% market share)
For the Model Y, it was the second first place (after a huge delivery in September), that allowed it to become the third BEV and fifth top-selling model in the country year-to-date.
The Model 3, on the other hand, has strengthened iits first place year-to-date position as the first crossing the 10,000 mark this year.
The Made-in-China Tesla cars are doing very well in Norway and the brand has maintained its first position among all brands year-to-date (16,060 units). The advantage over Volkswagen is not high (15,165), but considering that in the final month of the year Tesla will once again deliver a very high number of cars, the race is probably already over.
Then we see the surprisingly strong Nissan LEAF (655), and strong results posted by Polestar 2 (502), Ford Mustang Mach-E ( 491) and Skoda Enyaq iV (488). The all-new Hyundai Ioniq 5 is also not bad at 475.
If we count all three MEB-based SUVs (Volkswagen ID.4, Audi Q4 e-tron and Skoda Enyaq iV) as one, it would be 1,874.
The biggest disappointment is probably the portion of the Volkswagen ID.3 - 224 in November and 2,960 YTD.
The BEV registration results already in our database (year-to-date):
- Tesla Model 3 - 771 (10,090 YTD)

- Audi Q4 e-tron - 661 (2,672 YTD)
- MG ZS EV - 35 (2,379 YTD)
Unfortunately, the basic report does not reveal the share of plug-ins for Toyota RAV4 and Volvo XC40 (one of the top models in Norway).
