September 2020 was an exceptionally strong and quite interesting month of plug-in electric car sales in Norway, as several models noted very high results.
Let’s start from the overall passenger plug-in car registration numbers – 12,689 (up 75.6% year-over-year) is close to the all-time record of 12,764 (March 2019).
But most importantly, we noted a new all-time record of market share – 81.6%! Unbelievable! The ICE and conventional cars already soon might be almost totally wiped out.
A big part of the new record is the surging demand for PHEVs as well as BEVs (close to the record and at a record 61.5% market share).
Stats for the month:
- BEVs: 9,560 (up 57.1%, at 61.5% market share) + 751 ‘used’ + 308 vans (306 new and 2 used)
- PHEVs: 3,129 (up 174.7%, at 20.1% market share)
- Total: 12,689 (up 75.6%, at 81.6% market share)
Stats year-to-date show that Norway improved its plug-in car sales despite the COVID-19 challenges:
- BEVs: 48,174 (down 3%, at 50% market share)
- PHEVs: 19,357 (up 60%, at 20% market share)
- Total: 67,531 (up 10%, at 71% market share)
The all-new Volkswagen ID.3, without surprise (it was at 1,000 sales in the middle of the month), has become the top-selling model in Norway in September (as there were a lot of cars ordered prior to the start of deliveries). The ID.3 noted 1,989 new registrations (12.8% of all cars)!
Tesla Model 3
Top BEV results already in our database:
- Volkswagen ID.3 – 1,989
- Tesla Model 3 – 1,116 (total Tesla brand: 1,439, including 323 Model S/X)
- Polestar 2 – 937
- MG ZS EV – 672
- Audi e-tron – 542
This time Audi e-tron was lower in the table, but the electric SUV remains the top-selling model of any kind year-to-date with 7,690 registrations.
