Norway crushes it in market penetration of electric cars, already hitting about 4% of the market (primarily through the availability and sale of just 2 electric car models).

You may have caught my story the other day pointing out that the top-selling car in Norway two months in a row was an electric car (the Tesla Model S in October and the Nissan Leaf in November). Unfortunately, they didn’t top the list again in November; however, the overall share of electric car sales was the highest to date.

1,434 of Norway’s 12,079 new vehicle registrations in November were for electric cars. That amounts to a 12% market share, even considerably more than in September (8.6%) and October (7.2%).

Furthermore, the Nissan Leaf and the Tesla Model S did both make it into the top 10. The Model S was #2 at 527 registrations and the Nissan Leaf was at #5 with 512 registrations (just a 15-car difference). The Volkswagen (VW) Golf took the top spot with 666 sales, an apt number for the slightly downbeat news.

2014 should be a very interesting year. The BMW i3 and the VW e-Up! are coming to the Norwegian market, and I think also the Renault Zoe and Renault Fluence ZE, and the i3 and e-Up! reportedly already have over 1,000 orders each!

Note that electric car sales in the US are still far below 1% of total car sales.

Stay tuned for some even more uplifting Norway electric car news, including some exclusive interviews with EV leaders in Norway.
