Norwegian EV market

Another record for EV sales in Norway was set in 2021: 64.5 percent of all new cars sold were fully electric. 

2021 turned out to be the year the EV sales skyrocketed in Norway, where groundbreaking records became a frequent occurrence. In December electric vehicles (EVs) had a market share of 67 percent, however, September proved to be the record month of 2021, with a staggering 77.5 percent electric market share.

After 11 years in a row with Volkswagen residing at the throne of the Norwegian car market, 2021 was the year for a new car brand in the number one spot: Last year Tesla was the most sold car brand in Norway.

Part of the explanation is that Tesla Model 3 also was Norway’s best-selling car model by far in 2021.

Next in line was the plug-in hybrid Toyota RAV4, followed by Volkswagen ID.4 and Tesla Model Y.
