Norwegian car market sales figures for August have been released, with the Polestar 2 surpassing the Model 3 in sales volume.

Norway’s auto market sales figures for August have been released, with sales of new energy vehicles reaching 7,585, including 5,704 pure electric vehicles and 1,881 plug-in hybrid models. Sales of new energy vehicles grew by 28.1% year-on-year, with a total market share of over 70%.

The top three selling models are:

  • Audi e-tron, with 755 units sold
  • Mercedes-Benz EQC, with 595 units sold
  • Polestar 2, with 504 units sold

Norwegian people’s choices for electric vehicles are indeed unique. The Model 3, which sells well in the global market, sold only 264 units in Norway in August, far behind the e-tron and EQC. After the Polestar 2 entered the European market, it had a good start and directly reached the third place in the Norwegian sales ranking.

The first batch of 500 ID.3 vehicles arrived in Norway some time ago, and sales are likely to replace the e-Golf.
