Norway Top 20 Car Sales By Model : 2015

The Tesla S, a hit in Norway

We would have to go back to 1986, to find a year with more passenger car registrations than this (150 686). In a country that is run on hydroelectric, powering cars by electric makes sense.

Norway's Top 20 is affected by incentives for electric cars, although they have been heavily scaled back recently. VW has got into 'e' cars, the Auris has a hybrid variant, Tesla is the 5th best selling model and so it goes on. All benefited greatly with those models. An exception was the Leaf, which had a shocking December (no pun intended) and generally a disappointing 2015.

I would like to have brought you more models but this all that's available. Green is up and yellow down.
