Car sales fall in most Western European markets. In Norway, there it goes in the opposite way. We have the highest growth of all, with an increase of 1.9 percent in the first half.

Norway is one of four countries that are moving towards the flow, new figures from the analysis company LMC Automotive show according to Motor.

In Norway, 78,209 new cars were registered during the first months of the year. Over two thirds of these are electrified.

For Western Europe overall, there is a fall of 3.5 percent in the first half of the year, and further decline is expected in the coming months.

The fall in June was 8.5 percent compared with the same month in 2018.

In Denmark, Luxembourg, Greece and Germany there has been a slight sales growth. In most countries, however, sales have declined.

The sales figures in July and August are measured against relatively strong figures from last year, because car sales increased ahead of the new WLTP rules that will be introduced on 1 September.

WLTP is a new test method for the type-approval of cars for the European market.
