This month it is still not possible to present a complete ranking of Norway, because the usual sources, elbil.no and gronnbil.no haven't updated their numbers with last month numbers, so we get only the partial data of ofvas.no, enough to make the following Top 4 ranking and the notion that about 3.000 first time registrations of EV's were made in October, doubling sales YoY and keeping the EV Share at around 22%.
Looking at the top spots in October:
- The VW e-Golf increased the consecutive streak of #1's to seven, leading the YTD table by far, with 27% share;
- The Mitsu Outlander PHEV made its second best performance in Norway, selling 374 units and reaching Second Place for the first time ever (Third in the general ranking and best selling SUV), securing even further its Fourth spot in the YTD ranking, and the title of Best Selling PHEV in Norway;
- Third, both in October and YTD, is the Nissan Leaf, with 355 units, a model that has been experiencing something of a resurgence in the past months, with three of the four best results being achieved in the last three months, something that will surely improve once the 30kWh version becomes available;
- As for the BMW i3, thanks to some sweet lease deals, it reached 326 registrations last month, its best result in 19 months(!), reaching #4 in the EV ranking and #2 in the B-Segment / Subcompact class, only behind the Toyota Yaris.
