As I have mentioned before, Norway is an insular nation. It seems to look inward and cautious with 'outsiders'. Statistics are handled by a company that makes a living selling the data. Of course it needs to protect the resource, but those willing to pay want detail and are presumably professionals within the auto industry. This caution I mentioned earlier means that only the top 10 brands are released. I am sure releasing all brands total sales is not the statistics companies pay for. It wouldn't, therefore, impact on their business. I guess we must be grateful for small mercies. I managed to get the top 20 for this list.
Toyota had a nice growth, but still some way from the summit, Kia, Mazda and Subaru are climbing but Mitsubishi fell into a deep crevasse.
The data below shows rank in 2011, then 2012, brand, total sales, increase/decrease and finally market share.
VW retained top spot, but with a reduction in its lead, with both Ford and Peugeot taking a bit of a hammering. Mind you nothing like Mitsubishi, 5th last year and falling off the chart in 2012!
