The total number of new passenger car registrations amounted to 6,105 (up 81.9%) in Norway for April.

The new Nissan LEAF continues its market dominance with the highest number of registrations in April (997) and this year (3,995) among all cars, regardless of powertrain.

Because the LEAF noted 2,172 new registrations in March, we could assume that the first 3,000 delivered unloaded the queue in Norway.

Which Plug-In model has the highest cumulative total of sales in Norway (during the current decade)?

Must be the Nissan Leaf, right?

Mr. M

The Nissan Leaf has counted 39.975 registrations out of 162.869 registrations so far. He is the all time leader with roughly one quarter of all sales. See elbilstatistikk.no for more informations.

Good question. There are over 12 months waiting list. They have had problems with getting enough of smart display units according a dealer. There are several thousands waiting for it.
Some will probably just but a Nissan, og it takes to long.
