Let’s all look at the car sales in this different country, where no cars are produced. Number of cars sold in paranthesis.

20. Mercedes Benz B-Class (1883)


Because of the electric version being popular in urban areas, the B-class makes the top 20.

19. Volvo V60 (1895)

Not new anymore, and it is often considered too small for Norwegian families.

20. Ford Focus (2012)

3. Skoda Octavia (4280)

2. Toyota Auris (4890)

1. Volkswagen Golf (16388)

No, not a typo. The sales got boosted by the e-Golf and the GTE plug-in hybrid. This is the best selling model per year of all time in Norway, beating the Ford Sierra figures from 1986.

How will 2016 go? I expect the list to be pretty much the same, but the Tesla Model X and the Volvo XC90 might change things slightly.
