Audi SUVs selling like hot cakes in Norway

Of the total car sales in Norway last month, 35.7% were electric.

On Friday, registration data from Norway showed, the adoption rate of Audi’s fully-electric e-tron sports utility vehicle saw a new high last month, with the German carmaker gaining 8.3% in market share.

According to the Norwegian Road Federation, Audi delivered 873 electric SUVs in October, with Volkswagen Golf gaining the second place with 748 cars.

In total, 35.7% of all cars sold in Norway last month were electric.

Seeking to end the sale of combustion-engine cars by the middle of the next decade, Norway exempts battery-powered vehicles from taxes imposed on petrol and diesel engines.

Although Tesla’s Model 3 sales fell to a market share of just 1.2% in October, but the car still remains the country’s top-selling car year-to-date.
