During the day it will boil in the electric car market. The new models are constantly evolving as they grow.
There is only one challenge, and it is the delivery time.
According to the latest data from the Road Traffic Advisory Council (OFV), 39,692 full electric cars were sold this year. On the whole, there are currently 178,521 electric cars on the Norwegian roads.
The demand is still huge, and so far production has slightly improved.
Fortunately, there are exceptions. Nissan announces to Dinside that they have a three month delivery time on the pages. But the top most popular cars that offer a large range – such as Hyundai Kona and Kia e-Niro – now have a two-year standby time. The latter has even closed the booking option because it sees that they are not able to deliver.
Many electric car importers have put in wait lists where you pay a deposit so you can put in a queue to get a car when it comes to sales.
"If you are looking for an electric car that interests you, it's good to keep up with when waiting lists are open so you can safely place a queue," says Nils Sødal, Senior Communications Advisor at NBS.
Almost 40,000 are in the waiting list to deliver the car they are waiting for.
"Waiting lists arise because the production is small and therefore Norwegian car importers are not able to get enough electric cars at a sufficiently fast pace, so you have to include in the calculation that you have to wait extra for the new models that come," says Sødal.
The NAF has gathered information from car importers for 2019, and several manufacturers report that they come with brand new models, but no earlier than 2020. And if you are one of the first ways in one of these cars, next time it will be for you Follow the waiting lists.

Electric cars with long waiting lists
In 2019 there are plenty of electric cars in car stores, but waiting lists have long been filled.
