Norway’s electric car market still stands out as the one and only European market where
electric cars have attracted a serious and consistent following from all those willing
to switch to what some visionaries still see as the most likely form of private individual
transport in the 2040s and beyond
It may be audacious to say that a market segment that has been growing at a dizzying rate for most of this and
last year may already have peaked.
But some electric car market observers now take the view that the breakneck rate of expansion seen of late in Norway’s
electric car market may be about to give way to a more down to earth rate of expansion.
Today, eleven months through the current year, electric cars have already captured 12.6 per cent of Norway’s new car market.
To put this into perspective, West Europe’s electric car sales share at the ten months stage - excluding Norway
- currently stands at a paltry 0.31 per cent.
That compares with 0.24 per cent during the corresponding period of last year, according to AID’s own
Europe’s October electric car sales grow at slowest pace in 10 months
