In a symbolic first, electric cars outsold fossil fuel-powered ones in Norway last month.
Christina Bu, the Norwegian Electric Vehicle Association's general secretary, said Monday that 58.4% of new cars sold in the country in March were battery-powered, calling it "historically high."
Tesla's delivery ramp-up of Model 3 sedans contributed to the March surge.
Bu added that electric cars' share of the market in the first three months of 2019 was 48.4% and is expected to hover around 50% for the whole year.
"Norway shows the whole world that the electric car can replace cars powered by gasoline and diesel and be an important contribution in the fight to reduce C02 emissions," Bu said in a statement.
