Solid result for the Norwegian market in November: up 10% year-on-year to 12.600 registrations, lifting the year-to-date total to 136.608 units, up 5% on the same period in 2014. Totally unaffected here by the diesel scandal, Volkswagen is more dominant than ever: doubling the market gains at +22% to 18.6% share and doubling all other manufacturers in the market at 2.346 sales vs. 1.102 for Toyota (-11%). Volvo is down 1% but up to #4, BMW continues to improve at full throttle at +32%, as do Ford (+29%), Mazda (+34%), Mitsubishi (+93%), Opel (+60%) and Honda (+42%).
The VW Golf continues its one-car-show in Norway with a mammoth 11.4% market share this month thanks to 1.435 sales, 59% of which being the electric e-Golf. With year-to-date volumes now adding up to 15.338 (+76%), the Golf is at arm’s length of the all-time annual sales record established in Norway by the VW Beetle back in 1969 (16.699). Only one month until we know for sure… The Mitsubishi Outlander improves on an already very robust October score to land in 2nd place overall with 578 deliveries, 86% being the PHEV variant. The Toyota Auris (+18%) is kicked down to third place just above the VW Passat (+114%), the Volvo XC60 is up 12 spots on October to #7, the BMW i3 confirms it is now a regular fixture inside the Norwegian Top 10 at #8 and the Mazda CX-3 makes its very first appearance in that very same Top 10 at #9 with 289 units.
