Tesla is again leading the electric vehicle market in Norway and Model 3 is the best-selling EV in Q2. Model 3 continues its victorious march across the country and becomes the best-selling electric vehicle in the first half of 2021.
Tesla's brilliant success in Norway continues, underpinning the company's strong growth in the global car market. EV sales in the Norwegian market are impressive again, thanks in large part to Tesla sales. According to eu-evs, the company delivered 3,196 Model 3s in June, which inevitably made it a top seller. Cumulative sales for the three months of the quarter amounted to 3,704 units, which allowed the model to get ahead and once again take first place.
In second place with a margin of 234 units is VW ID.4 with 3,470 registrations. Despite all efforts throughout the quarter, the model has not been more interesting to the Norwegians than Model 3. ID.4 is not a direct competitor to Model 3, so the more direct comparison will begin after Model Y becomes available for order in Norway. Judging by the fact that even the Tesla sedan is more popular than the ID.4 crossover, Model Y will probably take a significant part of the market from it.
The American Ford Mustang Mach-E is also in the top 3 in Q2 with 2,705 registrations. The Skoda Enyaq is in fourth place with 2,246 sales. Closing out the top 5 is Volvo XC40 with 1,783 registrations.
Q2 was yet another Tesla victory in the Norwegian market. In Q1 2021, Model 3 was also the best-selling EV in the country. Thus, according to the cumulative data for the current year, Tesla Model 3 is the best-selling EV in Norway in 2021. Tesla may still bring a few more surprises this year, however the real competition in Europe will begin when Giga Berlin starts production, which is expected to happen in late 2021 to early 2022.
