Car sales, Bodo |  Car sales remain high in Salten

At the end of August, new car sales in Norway were down three percent from a year ago, the Road Traffic Information Board reports. Meanwhile, the auto industry is concerned that new interest rate increases, higher electricity prices and generally higher price increases will affect the market this fall.

In July, OFV concluded that new car sales had a relatively normal range. The situation for the month of August is a failure of just over 10 percent compared to the same month last year.

Car sales are affected

So far this year, the number of new car registrations is down about three percent from last year. But OFV adds that the tough economy influences the choice when buying a car. The exact national numbers are that 11,083 new passenger cars were registered in August (-10.4%). So far this year, 85,155 new passenger cars have been delivered. This is 3.3 percent lower than in the same period in 2022.

National figures show that of the new passenger cars registered for the first time so far this year, the proportion of electric cars is 83 percent. While the number of new diesel and petrol cars is almost completely flat, new petrol and plug-in hybrid cars account for approx. 13 percent of new car registrations.

Normally new car registrations pick up during the fall, but right now there is no indication this will be the case this year, as OFV expects for the last five months of the year.
