A total of 10,507 new passenger cars were first registered in Norway in July. That is 7.5% more than in the same period last year.

Looking at the first seven months of the year as a whole, new car sales have increased by 36.9% compared with the same period last year, figures from the Road Traffic Information Council show.

The brand new Ford Mustang Mach-E is at the top when it comes to new registrations – as many as 898 cars of that model were delivered to customers in July.

“The dream of having a Ford Mustang has now clearly come true for many. For the new Mustang model, which is a completely electric car, new car sales peaked in July. 

“And overall, sales figures for new cars, which are clearly dominated by electric cars, suggest that range and charging worries are becoming history. Now almost ‘everyone’ wants an electric car,” director of the Road Traffic Information Council (OFV) Øyvind Solberg Thorsen noted.

The figures show that 64.1% of the new cars were fully electric. 27.6% were hybrid cars.
