Norway’s Insane March Plug-in Car Sales
April 7th, 2014 by Zachary Shahan
There’s a good chance you’ve heard about Tesla’s record-smashing sales in Norway in March. Well, now I’ve got the full breakdown of Norway’s electric car and plug-in hybrid electric car sales last month. (Note that you can change between March & YTD sales in the interactive chart above.)
If you switch to YTD sales, it’s a slightly different story. The Model S is still #1, but the Nissan LEAF isn’t as far behind. Pretty far below those but above the rest are the VW e-Up! and the BMW i3. A strong 5th is the Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in.
In terms of electric car market share, the Model S has 48% in March and has 36% YTD; the Nissan LEAF had 14% in March and has 27% YTD; both in March and YTD, the VW e-Up! has about 12%, the BMW i3 has about 11%, and the Mitsubishi Outlander has about 8%.
As always, here are static images of the charts above:
