Norway is World’s #1 in Electric Vehicle Sales – Netherlands #2
The numbers for 2013 are all finally in. The result? Norway is #1.
For 2013, plug-in vehicles accounted for 6.1% or all passenger vehicle sales in Norway.
In the #2 spot was the Netherlands at 5.55%.
Three through five are as follows:
- Iceland: 0.94%
- Japan: 0.91%
- France: 0.83%
Where does the US place? Wherever 0.62 % lands it. Well outside of the Top 5, that’s for sure.
Though the US bought the most plug-in vehicles out of any nation in 2013, the market share was low due to how HUGE total automotive sales are in the US. 0.62% ain’t bad, but we’re going to have to kick that figure up a few notches to have a chance at making the Top 5 for 2014.
