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

    1. Miggy says:

      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.

    2. See Through says:

      “#3- China: ~2,800”

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

      1. Rob Stark says:

        All imports are presold with non-refundable deposits.

  2. мм says:

    Bulgaria had 15 Model S sales this year.

  3. Ontario Blue Leaf says:

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

    1. Ontario Blue Leaf says:

      In September that is.

    2. Eric Loveday says:

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

  4. David Murray says:

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

    1. Mikael says:

      Not in China and the UK.

  5. Stephen says:

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

    1. Mikael says:

      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).

  6. Cavaron says:

    Wow, despite incentives France is not even in there…

  7. Enault says:

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

  8. EV-1 says:

    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!
