According to sales results in Norway for the first five months of 2023, Tesla Model Y has achieved a crushing victory. The electric SUV outperformed the five closest competitors combined, further solidifying its status as the best-selling vehicle in the country.
Norway is the country with the highest level of EV adoption. In fact, competition there is only among electric vehicles, and cars with internal combustion engines make up only about 10% of the car market. At the same time, about 83% of the market share is accounted for by pure electric vehicles and about 7% by plug-in hybrids. However, the data may change from month to month, albeit with relatively small fluctuations.
As in the previous months of 2023, Tesla Model Y was the best-selling car in the country in May, regardless of powertrain type. The American manufacturer registered 2,688 Model Ys, far surpassing all of its competitors. Volkswagen ID.4 took second place with just 705 units and BMW IX1 was third with 550.
The cumulative sales data for the period from January to May highlights Tesla Model Y's crushing superiority over any other player in the market. Tesla registered 12,433 Model Ys, more than the combined sales of its nearest five competitors. In second place with 2,692 sales is Volkswagen ID.4. This is almost five times less than Model Y sales. In third place is Volvo XC40 with 2,252 units sold. Toyota sold 2,091 BZ4Xs and placed fourth. In fifth place is Volkswagen ID.BUZZ with 2,082 sales.
