In March 2016, electric vehicle and hybrid vehicle registrations represented 60% of total automotive registrations in Norway, according to the most recent figures from Dinside Motor. Of this total figure – 2,595 of the registrations were for all-electrics (EVs); 2,042 of the registrations were for plug-in hybrids (PHEVs); and 3,396 of the registrations were for conventional hybrids. EVs and PHEVs together totaled 5,102 registrations for the month (36.7% of total registrations). This was accompanied by 465 used EV registrations.
The total vehicle registrations for the month in Norway were 13,875 — meaning that EVs, PHEVs, and hybrids, took a 61.2% share of the total market when taken together.
The Norwegian government is currently working towards a goal of (nearly) 100% emissions-free vehicles on the country’s roads by the year 2025 — as part of its plans to slash carbon emissions by 40% (from 1990 levels) over the next decade and a half.
