OSLO (Reuters) – Electric cars accounted for a 44.3% share of Norway’s new car sales in January, rising from the year but well below the 50-60% range the industry forecast for 2020, data from the Norwegian Road Federation showed on Monday.
In January 2019 electric cars made up 37.8% of sales in the Nordic country and climbed in subsequent months to an overall 42.4% market share for the full year.
