In Norway, electric vehicles (EVs) now account for over 20% of new-car sales, with 18% from pure electrics (as opposed to hybrid). 


The best seller is the Volkswagen e-Golf, which won 39% of Norway’s EV sales in February 2015, followed by the Nissan Leaf at 12% (down on previous figures) and Tesla Model S at 9% (a bit of a come-back).

Electric Vehicle News said the success of the e-Golf “sends a clear signal to auto makers that non-quirky, conservative body styling can boost EV market share significantly”.
