VW e-Up!

VW e-Up!

Volkswagen up! in November of 2013 broke into the top sales in Norway –ย all thanks to the electric version introduced in October (first 11 units were sold that in its debut month).

Taking advantage of a rare opportunity to compare electric and non-electric versions, we prepared a graph showing that majority of VW Up! sold in Norway are indeed of the electric version.

For first seven months of this year, the e-Up! holds a commanding lead over the ICE Up! at 78% (1,817 from 2,329).

This is probably the ratio we could expect (in Norway, at least) for any ICE model after applying high incentives for EVs.

Recently, the Volkswagen e-Golf got to the top of the sales chart in Norway with 391 registrations in July. This is 34.4% of all Golfs and we hope that 70-80% ratio is coming soon for this model too.

Makes you wonder why they even offer the Ice version. Ive personaly never considered buying a Gulf or a VW in general but im kinda excited to check the E-Gulf out if/when they arive in Canada. If they are priced under 30K cnd.

It’s Golf. The (Persian) gulf is where the oil comes from, the e-Golf is where the oil crumble and die ๐Ÿ˜›

It’s only the 3rd most sold car in the world ever. ๐Ÿ˜‰

That has to be one of the most horrible names for a car.

My parents just got back from Norway. They said they could not believe how many Teslas were driving around there.
