Grey sky for the Norwegian new car market: down another 5% year-on-year in February to 10,685 registrations, which brings the year-to-date total to 21,208 units, down 6% on 2014. Volkswagen dominates the brands ranking with 1,895 sales and 17.7% above Toyota at 13.6% and Nissan at 7.1%. This is partly due to a Golf remaining at stratospheric heights (11.4% share this month) thanks to its e-Golf and GTE Plug-in variants accounting for 70% of the nameplate’s sales.
The Toyota RAV4 delivers a second month in a row in 2nd place thanks to 450 units sold, the Toyota Auris is up 3 spots on January to #3, the Skoda Octavia up 4 to #4 and the Tesla Model S returns to olympic shape at #6 with 321 sales and 3.1% share vs. #43 last month, thanks to the arrival of the 4WD variant, already accounting for 70% of its February sales. The Suzuki SX4 (#12) and Nissan X-Trail (#15) also impress.
