New passenger car registrations in Norway increased in March by 6% year-over-year to 16,238, mostly thanks to all-electric cars.
Last month, 14,930 passenger plug-in electric cars were registered (up 15% year-over-year). The plug-in market share improved to a new all-time record of 91.9%.
The most important is the new all-time monthly record of all-electric car registrations. In March, 13,983 new BEVs were registered (up 62%), which translated into a record share of 86.1%. No other country can match Norway in terms of all-electric car share.
Plug-in hybrid sales continue to collapse due to a reduced tax incentives (CO2 emission component).
Stats for the month:
- BEVs: 13,983 (up 62%, at 86.1% market share) + 1,336 "used" + 495 new vans
- PHEVs: 947 (down 78%, at 5.8% market share)
- Total: 14,930 (up 15%, at 91.9% market share)

The gasoline, diesel and non-rechargeable hybrids were in the minority with 8.1% of the market in March (2.8% gasoline, 2.6% diesel, 2.7% hybrids).
Non-rechargeable hybrids are at the lowest share in many years.
It's an amazing achievement, especially since the second-best for the month and year-to-date is the Tesla Model 3 with respectively 1,696 and 1,736 units.
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 completes the top five with 591 units in March and 1,522 in Q1. As we can see below, most of the top 20 models year-to-date in Norway are battery-electric, while some others have all-electric or plug-in hybrid versions.
