Norway: 5,123 new electric cars in July

In Norway, 5,123 new electric passenger cars were registered in July, accounting for 70.7 percent of all new passenger car registrations for the month. In addition, there were 890 new plug-in hybrids. In terms of models, the Skoda Enyaq led the ranking in Norway in July with 673 registrations.

In Norway, it is now becoming apparent that e-cars are also increasingly affected by a lack of semiconductors and logistics bottlenecks: on an annual basis, the E share of new registrations did increase from 64.0 percent in July 2021 to 70.7 percent, but by June 2022, 78.7 percent of all new registrations in Norway were already pure electric vehicles.

In addition to the pure electric cars - the Norwegian authority OFV does not differentiate between BEV and FCEV, but fuel cell cars only have a very small share - there were just 89ß plug-in hybrids in July. Compared to the same month last year, this is a decline of 58.9 percent, and the year-to-date figure (7,251 new PHEVs) is 69.1 percent. The PHEVs thus had a market share of 12.3 percent in July, which means that 83 percent of all new cars in Norway had a charging connection.
