Podium places only for PHEV’s in Norway

After a slight slip last month, the Norwegian PEV passenger car market is growing again, with registrations up 17% Year-on-Year to 2.968 units, with plug-in hybrids (Up 140%) compensating for the BEV steep 38% registrations drop.

The July podium places reflect this, for the first time we have a 100% PHEV Top 3, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV continues its recent sales success, earning its fourth monthly Best Selling title in 2016, with 504 units, followed by the VW Golf GTE (412 registrations), with the Third Position belonging to another Volkswagen, the Passat GTE, with 294 units.

This performance from the Japanese SUV allowed it to reach the Year-to-date leadership, the first time a plug-in hybrid is the top of the YTD ranking.
