Norway continues to lead the way in the uptake of electric vehicles, with new data showing that the Scandinavian country has now recorded it’s best ever month in September.
Of 10,620 new passenger vehicles registered in Norway, nearly half were electric, according to the Norwegian Road Traffic Advisory Council (OFV).
“The car market in September was particularly special, new Norway records and a new world record were introduced for the sale of electric cars,” says Øyvind Solberg Thorsen, director of the OFV.
For the first time in modern history, electric cars stood for almost half of passenger car sales for a month.
