There’s a good chance you’ve heard about Tesla’s record-smashing sales in Norway in March. Well, now I’ve got the full breakdown of Norway’s electric car and plug-in hybrid electric car sales last month. (Note that you can change between March & YTD sales in the interactive chart above.)

Obviously, the Tesla Model S crushed it last month. The next five electric cars—the Nissan LEAF, VW e-Up!, BMW i3, and Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in—formed a clear second tier.

If you switch to YTD sales, it’s a slightly different story. The Model S is still #1, but the Nissan LEAF isn’t as far behind. Pretty far below those but above the rest are the VW e-Up! and the BMW i3. A strong 5th is the Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in.

In terms of electric car market share, the Model S has 48% in March and has 36% YTD; the Nissan LEAF had 14% in March and has 27% YTD; both in March and YTD, the VW e-Up! has about 12%, the BMW i3 has about 11%, and the Mitsubishi Outlander has about 8%.

As with Sweden, Norway had more plug-in car sales in March than in both January and February combined. March was actually a strong month in countries across Europe, as well as in the US.
