Once again EV sales in Norway exceeded all expectations as a new milestone in the registrations of new cars took place in the month of September. As Norway’s official sales figures for the past month show, electric cars managed to squeeze a share of total sales in the country that reaches an impressive 77.5%.
As is well known, Norway has been for many years the leading country in the adoption of electric cars, having already announced a ban on the sale of vehicles with thermal engines with a time horizon of 2025. But it is most likely that by the end of 2022 in Norway 99% of cars will be electric.

The best-selling EV of the Norwegian market last month was the Tesla Model Y, which gained a share of 19.8% of all new vehicle registrations. Second was the Tesla Model 3, with a share of 12.3%, while third was the new Skoda Enyaq iV, with a share of 4.4%.
Following the results of the recent elections in Norway, the zero-tax policy of EV is expected to change in the country, according to the announcements of the leader of the Labour party, Jonas Gahr Stoere, who is expected to lead the new government structure.
The new government has committed to taxing (say with VAT) at 25% a part of the price of a new EV that exceeds in value the 600,000 Norwegian kroner (60,000 euros).
