Norway: Audi e-tron And Mercedes EQC Top Sales Ranking In August 2020

The two most popular models right now are premium all-electric SUVs.

Another great month for plug-in electric car sales in Norway is behind us. In August, some 7,585 new plug-in passenger cars were registered, which is 28.1% more than a year ago.

The plug-in market share for the second time in history crossed 70%, reaching 70.2% (the all-time record is 75.2% noted in March 2020). Taking into consideration that the additional 8.8% are conventional hybrids, only a fifth of new passenger cars are conventional.

Both BEVs and PHEVs are expanding year-over-year, although plug-in hybrids are doing so noticeably quicker.

Stats for the month:

The e-tron is also the top-selling model for the year (7,158 and 9% of all new registrations YTD) with a huge advantage over others.

The first Volkswagen ID.3 units appeared in stats in August, but the customer deliveries will start later this month.
