Audi Q4 e-tron tops Norwegian sales chart in January 2022

Audi-Q4-50-e-tron-quattro

This is not even remotely surprising, but of 7,957 new passenger cars registered in January 2022 in Norway, 6,659 were all-electric, a share of nearly 84%. In fact, 19 of the top 20 were electric cars, with Toyota RAV4 (hybrid) sitting awkwardly in the middle, in 9th place. Hybrids grabbed a 6.8% share last month.

Obviously, sales of pure petrol and diesel cars (we’re talking about non-hybrids) have been declining for a long time, and in January 2022, these cars accounted for only 387 units in total. Of the total 387, 175 units were petrol cars; which means the Porsche Taycan outsold pure petrol cars in Norway. The Audi Q4 e-tron topped the sales chart last month, followed by the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and BMW iX. Interestingly, the cousins Skoda Enyaq and VW ID.4 hold an equal share. The Mustang Mach-E and Kia EV6 have taken 6th and 7th places respectively, with equal share. And notice that China’s Hongqi E-HS9 has also made it to the top 20 list.
