the First time that the Volvo V90 gets into the Top 10. It will not be the last…

In February, other 11.788 units have been added to the account of enrolment in the Norwegian market. This fact implies a reduction of 3.6% in comparison with the same month of the previous year, but there are no grounds for alarm because this month had one working day less than the 2016.

In this way, Norway is adding to the downward trend in the enrolments of the major european countries during February. In the annual accumulated reaches 24.843 units (+7,0%) thanks to good data from the previous month that was very much influenced by the restructuring of taxes that the Government has carried out. In the coming months, expect the results to be more stable.

In regard to the ranking of models, in head, there are few developments with regard to the results of January, with the only alteration of the exchange of positions between the Volkswagen Passat (2) and the BMW i3 (3rd). In head, as usual, remains the Volkswagen Golf, despite the fact that their demand has dropped a strong 48.6 per cent compared with February 2016.

The hybrid Toyota C-HR and Kia Niro are gaining many supporters in the Norwegian market

Goodbye diesel: manage to 28.5% of sales, but in February of 2016, were the 35,1%

The Mitsubishi Outlander is left at the gates of the podium recovering positions after a bad start to the year, as is logical, with the hybrid version plug-in Outlander PHEV, taking away the vast majority of the sales. The Nissan Leaf closes the Top 5, ahead of the Toyota RAV4, the first of the four models that Toyota placed between the first 12.

Is important to highlight the good work of the Volvo V90 that gets its best historical position in this market with a fantastic seventh position. As is traditional in scandinavia is a clear preference on the body family in front of the sedan, as the S90 is far from the posts above. Among the recent developments are also praising the results of the Toyota C-HR (12th) and the Kia Niro (15th).

In terms of the table of manufacturers, Volkswagen is in control but your domain is becoming less and less (-13%). Toyota retrieves the second place, that lost the previous month in front of BMW despite the fact that the bavarian manufacturer is in a state of exceptional shape (+23%). It is striking that Tesla has had a beginning of the year hesitant and, interestingly, their flagship model Model S is not the most sought-after (184 units in 2017), but what is being the Model X (281 units in 2017).
