Nissan LEAF in Norway
The Year of 2014 started in the best possible way for the LEAF in Norway. The Japanese EV again is the leader!
Nissan sold 650 LEAFs in January gaining 5.7% market share and more than 50% market share among EVs. Total new passenger cars with electric drive had 1,099 registrations in Norway in January. That works out to 9.7% market share.
Everything is growing in Norway, no matter if it's summer or winter! 1,099 registrations are over 2-times higher than in January 2013 when just 337 were sold. LEAF sales grew from 265 last January to 650 in January 2014.
The top selling ICE cars in Norway in January were 563 registrations (Toyota Auris) and 465 (Volkswagen Golf).
The next best EV was the Volkswagen e-up! with 175 units. Total up! sales were 218, so 80% of them were electric.
Tesla delivered 132 Model S EVs last month in Norway, grabbing 1.2% market share.
BMW i3 had 82, Mitsubishi i-MiEV 41, Citroen C-Zero 9, Peugeot iOn 4, Ford Focus Electric 4 and on the bottom we see 2 new Renault Fluence Z.E.
All these numbers do not include the 203 used imported EVs - mostly LEAFs, i-MiEVs and iOns. Altogether, with 39 new electric vans (31 Peugeot Partner and 8 Citroën Berlingo) we see total 1,341 EVs added to the road of Norway last month... and probably another bus lane is now corked up with EVs in Oslo.
