Electric and hydrogen cars accounted for 37.3% of new car sales in Norway in March
The sales of battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in Norway touched a commendable high in March 2018, with green vehicles together accounting for a significant 37.3% of all new cars registrations in the country during the month.
In terms of specific figures, a total of 14,401 new cars were registered in Norway in the month of March. Battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles constituted a notable portion of these new car registrations, with 5,322 electric cars and 4 hydrogen cars being among the new cars registered.
The top-selling ‘green’ carmakers in Norway in March were Nissan and Tesla. According to the figures, Nissan sold 2,172 units of LEAF during the month, while Tesla’s total monthly sales of Model X SUVs and Model S sedans stood at 1,403 units.
The notable monthly sales of battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in Norway implies that March 2018 was an excellent month for ‘green’ transportation in the country. The average carbon dioxide emissions from all new cars registered in the country during the month were 63 grams per kilometre, which underscored a drop of 22 grams per kilometre as compared to March 2017.
The increasing popularity of electric vehicles in Norway has evidently taken a toll on diesel cars and gas-powered cars, which respectively accounted for only 16% and 20% of new car sales in the country in March 2018.
