Ford Mustang Mach-E

Ford Motor’s electric Mustang Mach-E topped Norway‘s car sales in May, the first entire month of registrations for the crossover vehicle in the small but major market in Northern Europe, national data showed on Tuesday.

Battery electric vehicles comprised 60.4% of all new cars sold in Norway last month, according to the Norwegian Road Federation (OFV) said, increasing from 43.1% a year ago as the country looks forward to becoming the first to end the sale of petrol and diesel engines by 2025.

By exempting fully electric vehicles from taxes imposed on internal combustion engines, the country has turned its auto market into a testing ground for automakers seeking a path to a future without the need for fossil fuels.

A total of 1,384 electric Ford Mustangs have been registered in May for a 10% share of Norway’s whole car market, beating Toyota’s RAV4 hybrid vehicle and Skoda’s electric Enyaq. Tesla’s Model 3 took sixth place.

“Our realistic goal is to remain prominent in the sales figures for several months to come,” Chief Executive Per Gunnar Berg of Ford Norway.
