The most popular CleanTechnica stories of October were led by Polestar and Mazda. Seriously. No offense to Polestar or Mazda (okay, some offense to Polestar and Mazda), but I wouldn't have seen that coming a mile away. Does this show a great thirst for more EV news beyond Tesla and more serious EV entries? Possibly. Or it was just some lucky timing and catchy headlines. Or all of the above. In any case, that's where things landed in October. Tesla still dominated the top 20, with 15 out of 20 stories, but it was an interesting phenomenon to see the company almost pushed out of the top

One of the most popular TV shows in Norway, "Farmen," gave Tesla free promotion when the host Gaute Grøtta Grav and the participants arrived in five white Tesla Model S at the season premiere last month — according to various ad agency analyses, this could be a six-figure cost for Tesla [TSLA] if it was paid advertisement (which it certainly was not)

The Tesla Model 3 is in a class of its own. It's quicker and more fun to drive than a BMW, safer than a Volvo, has better tech than a Mercedes, and often has a total cost of ownership similar to a Toyota Camry or Honda Accord. All of that makes it a highly competitive vehicle in several markets. Its biggest downside is that the starting price, especially in Europe, put it in the premium car class, and many consumers can't afford a premium-class car

For those of you who have followed the Norway Tesla registration statistics this quarter, it has been very slow since the end of quarter flurry in June. Tesla delivered most of its shipments in June and the country has been waiting for a ship since then

For this piece, I will use the information on Tesla’s website to determine if paying cash, taking a loan, or leasing is the best option if you want a Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus (SR+). The twist here is I did these calculations for Switzerland, Norway, the Netherlands, China, and the UK. These were some of the most popular markets for Tesla in Q1 2019. I added in the UK, since it has been suffering for 3 years and deserves some attention

Last month, fully electric vehicles saw their registrations double year over year (YoY), pushing the overall market up +28% despite sales of every other powertrain type dropping at least 20%, which led to record fully electric vehicle (58%) and overall plug-in vehicle (69%) shares. As you already know, Tesla Model 3 deliveries went through the roof in March, with the model achieving 5,315 registrations, a new all-time record for any nameplate in Norway, whatever the fuel source

Editor's note: Maximilian Holland already published a superb accounting of Tesla, especially Tesla Model 3, sales in Norway in March. Key highlights were: 31% of new car deliveries were Teslas. That's more than the 23% of deliveries that were pure-fossil vehicle sales (all models combined). 58% of deliveries were fully electric vehicle deliveries

The Tesla Model 3 is on pace to shatter the all-time record for the most electric cars sold in one month in Norway, and that's only for the more expensive long range model. When the $35,000 version becomes available in Norway, every car sold in that country could be a Tesla!

Electric cars had a banner month in Norway in March, accounting for nearly 40% of sales. Conventional cars saw their share of the market fall to just over a third of sales. Is it a sign?

In 2012, Norway set a goal for transportation-related emissions. It decided that 85 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer would be the official target for the year 2020. The latest figures as reported by Norwegian news channel NA 24 show that goal was achieved and even exceeded in 2017, 3 years ahead of schedule.
