The Tesla Model Y has achieved an unparalleled level of success in Norway, breaking a sales record that had remained untouched since 1969.

With the most recent official data revealing that 16,921 Tesla Model Y has been registered in the country this year alone (as of December 23rd), it is clear to see why it has become such a popular choice.

Volkswagen Beetle recorded the highest number of new registrations in a single year since 1969, with 16,699 units already registered. And it’s not finished yet – there is still one month left to increase that total and potentially exceed 17,000 units for 2022.

Tesla proudly announced their accomplishments on Twitter:

The Tesla Model Y has had an exceptional year in Norway, with over 4,000 units registered during December already. This month is set to break the current record for most sales of this model ever! 25 thousand vehicles were sold across the entire 2020 period – a round number that speaks volumes about its success.

According to our observations of the Norwegian plug-in electric car market, Tesla Model Y is clearly leading each month regardless of powertrain. On average, almost 10% of new cars are specifically a Model Y – which means that nearly every tenth vehicle on the road today is one.

Furthermore, other electric vehicles are also becoming increasingly popular. The Volkswagen ID.4 is a prime example; with more than 11,000 units sold already this year – making it the second most sought-after model in its class.

It might surprise you to learn that the Volkswagen Group’s trio of MEB-based crossovers/SUVs, comprised of Skoda Enyaq iV (with over 7500 units sold) and Audi Q4 e-Tron (#7 BEV with more than 5500 units), have collectively totaled 23604 units. This is shockingly close to the 25000+ results achieved by Tesla Model Y – a testament to how rapidly electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular.

When it comes to all-time standings, the Nissan LEAF stands out from the rest. This reliable vehicle still sells amazingly well (the 12th highest result this year among BEVs). The astounding 76,000+ new registrations in Norway are proof of its success and make it more popular than any other BEV.
