Norway Plug-In Electric Car Sales Up Nearly 100% In November To 24% Market Share
Norway scored one of its best months ever for plug-in electric car sales in November, exceeding 24% market share.
Registrations of passenger cars hit 3,027 (2,040 all-electric and 987 plug-in hybrids). That’s nearly double the amount sold in November 2014 (1,544).
About half the PHEV sales come from the new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. The Outlander (including ICE version) was the second best-selling model last month with 578 registrations, and nearly 500 of those were PHEVs!
Plug-in hybrid sales are growing very quickly in Norway (up by 677%) – from just 127 a year ago, while all-electric cars are moving up slower (but still a strong 43%).
Separately, 170 new electric vans were registered, as well as 10 used imported electric vans. Imports of used all-electric passenger cars are still strong at 661.
