The First European Tesla Model S Delivered In Norway Last Month
A little over a month ago we reported on the first Model S electric sedans to be delivered into Europe.
"Those who seek the spirit of Norway face peril and adventure, but more often find beauty and charm." - Maelstrom at the Norway Pavilion, Epcot
More specifically, about a dozen were delivered on Aug 7th in Oslo, Norway. By the end of the month, it was reported Tesla had shipped and sold 185 copies of the Model S for August in the country, good for 1.6% of the total market.
Now as Tesla has just fired up six Supercharging locations around Norway comes word that September is going to be a very good month for the company in Europe, as Øystein Byberg for Hegnar Online (not in English) reports that 133 more were registered in the first week - for a total of about 318 cars sold in the last 30 days.
To give some context to how many 133 cars sold in a week is for Norway:
- that represents about 5% of the entire market
- the Tesla Model S is the best selling car for Norway so far in September; second place? VW Golf at 118
Also of interest: Tesla recently announced plans to expand their Supercharging plans throughout Europe at the IAA (Frankfurt autoshow).
