Electric Car Registrations For Norway Entering October 2014

Electric Car Registrations For Norway Entering October 2014

Like in the United States, Norway’s government has put some heavy incentives in place to encourage EV ownership.

And while that has translated to about 1% market penetration of new car sales in America, that figure is closer to 15% in Norway.

Given that the Nissan LEAF is the best selling EV in Norway, and the overall third best selling vehicle (gas or otherwise) in the country, it is not surprising to see Nissan put together a little “look at us and what we are doing in Norway” presentation.

To date, just over 15,000 LEAFs have been sold in the Scandanavian country, Nissan’s third best market for EVs worldwide.

    Awesome

  2. David Murray says:

    Would have been more interesting if they had shown other EVs besides just the Leaf. But what else can you expect from a Nissan-sponsored video?

    1. Assaf says:

      +1

      Haha, they must have paid someone to keep any non-Nissan EV from showing anywhere in the video. At least I couldn’t spot any.

        And that is not easy, it is hard to avoid Tesla cars in Norway.

    2. Jesse Gurr says:

      Oh, is that an i-MiEV at 0:24?

      1. Yes, many of them are Citreon/Peugeot branded.
        Norway is, after Japan, the country with second most sold iMiev’s.

  3. Spec9 says:

    The incentives in Norway are much bigger.
