Elektrek: Tesla becomes best-selling brand in Norway, pushing electric car market share to almost 50%

Tesla’s deliveries increased significantly in June in Norway – making Tesla the best-selling brand for the year and pushing the electric market share across all vehicles sold in the country to almost 50%.

As Elektrek has previously reported, Tesla tried to deliver a record number of vehicles in the second quarter and based on our data, it looks like Tesla was ‘very close’ to its delivery record at the end of the period.

The official global delivery numbers are not expected to be released until later this week.

However, Elektrek is already getting some registration data from some markets like Norway.

Tesla’s sales jumped to 3,760 units in June – making Tesla the best-selling brand for the month with a 24.5% market share and also for the whole year-to-date with a 16.1% market share.

Forbes: Electric Cars: Why Little Norway Leads The World In EV Usage

Almost 60% of new cars sold in Norway during March 2019 were entirely electric-powered. It’s the latest record-breaking statistic involving Norway and electric vehicle (EV) records as the Scandinavian nation looks to stop sales of fossil fueled cars by 2025.

The numbers could be even higher, but thousands of Norwegians find themselves on long waiting lists as dealerships struggle to import enough vehicles. According to industry figures, a total of 11,518 EVs were registered in Norway during the first quarter of 2019, twice as many as the previous year. The new Tesla Model 3, Nissan Leaf and Volkswagen Golf account for the majority of registrations.

Although unit sales in China and the U.S. are far higher, it’s Norway that remains the poster child of the EV revolution. That’s because there are far more EVs on Norwegian roads as a proportion of total vehicles than anywhere else in the world. Constant headlines over the past few years have left many people scratching their heads as to why a little Scandinavian nation with a population just over 5 million leads the EV revolution. The answer is simple: favorable environmental math, and financial incentives.

CleanTechnia: Tesla Takes 31% Of Norway’s Total Passenger Auto Sales In March

Tesla sold around 5,700 vehicles in Norway in March, of total new passenger car sales for the month of 18,375. That’s around 31% of the market.

Fully electric cars (BEVs) as a whole amounted to over 58% of Norway’s total new auto market, another record. With hybrids (both plugged and non-plugged) taking another 19%, this left only 23% market share for pure-fossil autos.

This means that Tesla significantly outsold all pure-fossil autos in Norway in March. The fossils are quickly becoming extinct.

Norway’s Road Traffic Information Council published figures recording a total of 10,732 new BEV registrations in March, some 58.4% market share. They also recorded that 5,315 Tesla Model 3s were registered in March.

Bloomberg: Tesla’s Model 3 Shatters Record in Electric Car Crazy Norway

Just weeks after Tesla Inc. started rolling out its Model 3 in Europe, the electric-car maker has beaten the monthly sales record in its key Norwegian market by a wide margin.

Bloomberg: A Ship Full of Teslas Is Hotly Awaited in Oslo
