Tesla Model S Outsells VW Golf to Become Norway’s Top Selling Vehicle; Captures 6.9% of Market
The compiling of this data was done in a rather unconventional way, but when looked at from this perspective, the Tesla Model S is Norway’s #1 selling vehicle.
In August (debut month for the Model S in Norway), sales of the Model S in Norway hit 184 units. That was a solid figure and place the Model S near the top of Norway’s charts.
But in the first two weeks of September, the Tesla Model S soared to the #1 spot with 322 units registered.
Yes, it’s an unconventional way of reporting sales (first two weeks of a single month), but if we examine sales in Norway from September 1 through September 16, then we see the Model S as the chart topper.
- 1: Tesla Model S – 322
- 2: Volkswagen Golf – 256
- 3: Toyota Auris
- 4: Mazda CX-5
- 5: Volvo V40
- 6: Skoda Octavia
- 7: Toyota RAV4
- 8: Nissan LEAF
*Chart rank determined by sales from Sept. 1 through Sept. 16
In the first two weeks of September, the Model S grabbed 6.9% of the Norwegian automotive market…6.9%!!!
Add in Nissan LEAF sales and electric vehicles accounted for 9.1% of Norway’s total automotive sales over that two-week period.
