In February, Norway registered 6,647 new electric cars.

Specifically, there were 464 more units than in February 2023 and 1,930 more than in January 2024, although January is traditionally a weaker month in Norway, so a direct comparison is less significant.

However, the growth compared to February 2023 is notable, as new registrations across all types of driving reduced by 58 vehicles, according to the Norwegian Road Information Authority (OFV).

In February 2024, purely electric cars represented an impressive 90.1 per cent of the total; a year ago, the figure was “only” 83.1 per cent with 6,193 electric cars.

In addition to battery electric cars, 147 plug-in hybrids were added in February, with a market share of two per cent.

This means that 92.1 per cent of all new cars in Norway had a charging connection.

However, PHEV registrations are also declining sharply in the country: the 147 units are 71.7 per cent below February 2023, including January, the drop in the current year is 65.7 per cent.

The rest of the hybrids fell by 23.2 per cent, to 312 new registrations (4.2 per cent market share), and new registrations of gasoline and diesel cars also continued to decline: 198 new diesel cars (2.7 per cent market share) and only 76 gasoline cars (1.0 per cent) were registered.

A year ago, these figures were 3.0 and 1.5 per cent respectively.

Like in January, the Tesla Model Y ranks first among models.

With 1,749 new registrations, this model not only significantly improved the January result but also achieved a market share of 23.7 per cent across all propulsion types.

Of the 6,647 new electric cars, the Model Y represented 26.3 per cent, i.e., more than a quarter.

The distance to the second place also shows how far Tesla is ahead of its competitors in Norway: the Toyota bZ4X appears in the statistics with 389 units, still with a market share of 5.3 per cent and more than full hybrids and PHEVs combined, but the difference with the Model Y remains significant.

Things get interesting behind the bZ4X because in February it was very close to it: the VW ID.4 (including the ID.5) got 267 units, the new Volvo EX30 in its second month already registered 235 new registrations in fourth place, closely followed by the discontinued Nissan Leaf (230), the Hyundai Kona (222), the MG4 (210), and the Nissan Ariya (206).

The Volvo XC40, the Audi Q4 e-tron, the Skoda Enyaq, the VW ID.3, the Toyota Yaris, the Polestar 2, and the Mazda MX-30 also achieved three-digit new registrations in February.
