Norway: Plug-In Car Sales Improved A Bit In October 2021

In October, the number of new passenger car registrations in Norway decreased by 10.6% year-over-year to 11,579. Even the plug-ins barely noted an increase.

According to the official data, some 10,342 new plugs-ins were registered during the month (up 0.9% year-over-year), which was enough to achieve a near-record 89.3% market share (the record was set previous month at 91.5%).

The all-electric cars improved 3% year-over-year to 8,116, controlling 70% of the market, while plug-in hybrids noted a 6% decrease to 2,226.

Stats for the month:

  • BEVs: 8,116 (up 3.1%, at 70.1% market share) + 1,090 “used” + 348 new vans
  • PHEVs: 2,226 (down 6.2%, at 19.2% market share)
  • Total: 10,342 (up 0.9%, at 89.3% market share)

Models

The Volkswagen ID.4 was the top-selling model in October with 913 registrations, followed by its cousin – Skoda Enyaq iV (760). A very good month was noted also by the Hyundai Ioniq 5 – 585 registrations.

We would like to note also a decent month for Polestar 2 (405) and still strong results set by the Nissan LEAF (353).

Tesla had a very silent month with only 56 units (including 53 Model 3), but the brand remains the #1 year-to-date, similar to the Model 3.

BYD Tang, the all-electric 7-seat newcomer from China, was the 9th most popular model (probably with up to around 300 units).
