If you’re going to make a bottom-10 list, then Ireland had 4 Model S sales this year.

Add New Zealand to the bottom 10 list, with zero sales or should I say zero deliveries.
We want it but just can’t get it.

“#3- China: ~2,800”

That is import number, not sales. Sales just about 1000.

All imports are presold with non-refundable deposits.

Bulgaria had 15 Model S sales this year.

According to Green car reports, in Canada Tesla S is 194. Which brings us ahead of those pesky Germans 🙂

In September that is.

Yep…that’s Polk data. Just released. I’ve confirmed that figure with Polk and update the article.

Was the model-s even available in all of those countries the entire year?

Not in China and the UK.

Is it possible to split the 3Q numbers by region North America / Europe / Asia. Which markets will Tesla expand into next?

It should be somewhere around 3800 for North America, 2000 Europe and 2000 Asia (+- a couple of hundred units in Europe/Asia as a margin of error).

Germany had 593 from January till October (official statistics). See: http://teslamag.de/news/tesla-fahrzeugzulassungen-in-deutschland-fuer-oktober-2014-1811

The number for sweden can be found here:

And here is a realy nice site for electric car adoption in sweden in general http://elbilsstatistik.se/
(It makes graphs :D)

Wow, despite incentives France is not even in there…

About 70 in Finland. Without local Tesla presence yet. Almost all sold by http://www.auto-outlet.fi

Maybe solltte The table will be changed and the inhabitants taken into account?
Then Norway would give before the Netherlands, Denmark or Switzerland. USA would be in 5th place!
