The e-Golf is the tip of the spear of Volkswagen in the Norwegian market

the Volkswagen Golf is in the first position of the table in this market is not new, but draws attention to its power against its rivals. The compact German has sold four times more than the model that is in the second position, an overwhelming dominance. Three-quarters of their enrollments correspond to the version electric e-Golf.

The second plaza has been the Toyota RAV4. If you are wondering what level of importance it has in the range of the hybrid version of this SUV is enough to say that of the 437 units registered, only 1 was not of the version RAV4 Hybrid. The third place is for the Mitsubishi Outlander and will have already guessed that in this model almost all the sales are gone with the Outlander PHEV.

The Toyota RAV4 Hybrid leads to the crossover japanese to the second place in the ranking

BMW i3 and the Toyota Yaris rounding out the Top 5. It also emphasizes the rise of the new Volvo XC60 at the eighth post, each month a bit higher in the ranking. The Skoda Octavia, 12, is the model without any version electrified that is placed highest in the table. Interestingly, in September both the Tesla Model S as the Tesla Model X entered the podium but this time both models are out of the Top 20, due to the fluctuation in the system of deliveries of Tesla.

Among the manufacturers, Volkswagen shows a clear advantage over Toyota. For his part, BMW is left with the third place, while Volvo shows a clear improvement to grow 36% with respect to their data of October 2016, more than any other brand in the Top 10. Those who suffer most are Nissan (-22%) and Mercedes (-12%).
