OSLO, Oct 1 (Reuters) – Demand for Tesla Inc’s (TSLA.O) mid-sized models helped push up electric car sales in Norway to nearly 80% of total car sales last month, data showed on Friday.
The country has been a global leader in switching to electric vehicles and seeks to become the first to end the sale of petrol and diesel engines by 2025.
Battery electric vehicles made up 77.5% of all new cars in September, the Norwegian Road Federation (OFV) said, up from 61.5% a year ago.
Tesla Model Y, a compact sports utility vehicle, was the top selling vehicle with 19.8% of the car market followed by the company’s Model 3 sedan with 12.3%. Skoda’s Enyaq was a distant third at 4.4%.
