After only one week of the Arrival of the Tesla Model Y in Norway sales have topped the charts with 790 registrations in August. We understand that August isn’t over yet but thanks to Norway’s constantly updating registration numbers we can provide you with a glimpse into how well the Model Y is being received in a key European EV market. As many know Norway is one of the most important EV Markers in the world. Many EV manufactures such as Xpeng also choose Norway as their first international Market.
As of today, Model Y registrations have effectively beat registrations for the Volkswagen ID.4 and the Ford Mustang Mach-E. The Model Ys domination in Norway’s registration chart reveals Tesla’s demand in the country.
Also notable is the Tesla Model 3, which is Norway’s fourth most registered vehicle in August thus far. The Model 3’s performance should be highlighted because it is a sedan that still tops the charts, despite going up against crossovers like the VW ID.4, Mustang Mach-E, and Tesla’s own Model Y.
The crossover category is steadily growing in the global automobile market. More people prefer crossovers over sedans due to their utility and general versatility. So, the Tesla Model 3 taking fourth place in Norway’s registrations is quite a feat, especially considering it beat SUVs from legacy OEMs like the Audi e-tron and the Audi Q4 e-tron.
Tesla’s dominance in Norway is significant because the country is one of the first to report electric car registrations beating ICE car registrations. Norway is close to reaching Tesla’s goal for the automotive part of the company. In July, most new passenger car sales were zero-emission vehicles. Nettavisen calculated that nearly 16 electric vehicles were sold in Norway for every diesel car in July.
