A record 61.5 per cent of new cars sold in Norway last month were powered by fully electric engines, registration data showed, up from 42.4 per cent for 2019 as a whole.
The debut last month of Volkswagen's highly anticipated ID.3 model vaulted it to the top of the Norwegian sales ranking, outselling California-based Tesla's Model 3 and Geely's Polestar 2 from China, according to the Norwegian Road Federation.
In its 2021 fiscal spending plan on Wednesday, the Norwegian government extended its policy of zero tax on fully electric cars, providing predictability for auto makers.
"This allows us to be confident in saying we can hit 90 per cent electric car sales next year," said Harald A. Moeller AS, the Norwegian importer of Volkswagen cars, including the Audi, Skoda and SEAT brands.
