2021 marks the highest level of Norway's transition to electric vehicles, and Tesla vehicles play an important role in this. Tesla has become the best-selling brand in the country in 2021 among all on the market.
The number of registered new passenger cars in Norway in October decreased compared to the same period last year, but the overall situation in 2021 looks positive. As of the end of October, 140,435 new passenger cars were registered in Norway, most of which were EVs, according to OFV. Car manufacturers are placing particular emphasis on meeting EU CO2 emissions requirements for new cars and this could mean Norway will have relatively good access to EVs and PHEVs compared to other European countries where these types of cars still account for a small market share, says Solberg Thorsen.
At the moment, there are many signs that the American Tesla will be the car maker with the most registrations in Norway this year if there are no serious disruptions to deliveries. As of the end of October 2021, Tesla is already the top-selling brand in the country, according to Lasse Edvardsen/Twitter. During this period, 14,266 vehicles from the American manufacturer were registered, and it took 10.2% of the market share. In second place was Volkswagen, which sold 13,891 vehicles, including all engine types. Toyota is in third place with 13,738 units.

It is clear that the Norwegians are delighted with Tesla cars, and the best confirmation of this is the sales figures, which remain high throughout the year. There are still two months left until the end of the year, which are traditionally among the strongest. Although November will be weaker, as all Tesla ships have not yet reached the coast of Norway, December promises to be very fruitful and we may see new registration records.
