Oslo, Norway

Norway‘s new car sales declined by 32.2% year-on-year in March, with fully electric vehicles grabbing 55.9% of the total market, registration data from the Norwegian Road Federation revealed the figures.

The year-on-year decline was mainly explained by a one-off boost in deliveries in March 2019 of Tesla’s Model 3, which made its debut on the Norwegian market in the early part of 2019.

In March this year, Audi’s e-tron electric sports utility vehicle was the top-selling car with 13.5% of the total market, while Tesla’s Model 3 came second.

The sales also appear to have declined because of the coronavirus pandemic. Safety measures such as social distancing aiming to reduce the spread of the virus were introduced in the country on 12th March. About 5,131 people in Norway have been confirmed as being infected with the coronavirus. The virus has killed 50 people in the country.
