Nothing much changes in Norway as all-electric car sales remain well above 10%.

In September, there were 1,300 registrations of new passenger BEVs (11.2% market share) and 348 used, which together brings us to 1,648. There were also 67 new electric vans.

Year-over-year growth for new cars was at over 24% last month as September 2013 was also a strong month.

Almost 14,000 BEV were sold so far this year in Norway this year.

Last month, the Nissan LEAF was back on the top with 367 new registrations and another 328 used imported (yeah, dealers can not keep up with demand, so used is the only option sometimes). With 3,745 LEAFs registered this year, the Japanese flagship overtook Tesla Model S at 3,535.

Volkswagen e-Golf and Volkswagen e-up! are somewhere between LEAF and BMW i3, the latter of which had 149 registrations in September. Sadly, we don’t know how many electric Golfs and up!s were registered exactly (over 200 each probably).

Tesla Model S was in fifth place with 104 registrations in September.

Renault ZOE was stable at 43 units, as previous months had 42, 41, 34.

Don’t forget the FFE, Ford probably sold 20 of those in this rich EV market. Such dedication shouldn’t be overlooked.

Norway should see to it that they manage to raise the BEV share more to the region of 15% for the year if they want to be the world’s showcase of emobility.

Anything in single digit percentages would stamp EVs as nichey niche “even in Norway”.

Imported Leaf’s to Norway have little and less to do with being unable to keep up with demand, but rather reflects the price difference between Norway and the rest of Europe. Leaf’s are sold in e.g. France or Belgium and immediately re-exported to Norway.

This phenomenon is either caused by European incentives being activated at the time of sake/registration (and benefits being re-applied in Norway latter), or just because Norwegian buyers are being ripped off in the first place…
