Nissan LEAF #1 In Norway Again

Norway EV Sales SeptemberMy trip to Florida for the EV Technology & Transportation Summit has delayed this report a bit, but I squeezed it in before the end of the month. The exciting bit of the story is that the Nissan LEAF pulled back in front of the Volkswagen e-Golf in September. For the year through September, though, the e-Golf still has a giant lead.

The Tesla Model S took the #3 spot and holds it for the year through September. Surprisingly, the Mercedes B-Class Electric made a big jump to #4 in September, despite being #10 for the year through September. The Kia Soul wasn’t too far  behind, sitting in its stable #5 spot.

With 4,191 electric car registrations in September, the electric car market accounted for 34% of the entire passenger car market in Norway. That is a far higher percentage than in any other country in the world.

    Whoa – 34% EV share of total car market is great news indeed!
    – and as automakers roll out new (PH)EV models, ever more of the brand-loyal customers have an electric car available from their favourite brand. I think the Mercedes B class electric is a good example on what happens when an automaker launches their first EV available in volume – and e-Golf was the previous good example.

    By the way: The real news story here is that EV’s now have more than 1/3 of all new car sales in Norway – so why is the headline that Leaf is back at #1 in the charts again?
