|The love affair between Norway and the Nissan Leaf continues|
"The Rise and Rise of EV's II" Edition
New record month for EV's in Norway, with 1.538 units, translating in a monthly EV Share of 13,5% and pulling the YTD EV Share to yet another record (6,10%).
Looking at the Overall Models Ranking we see the Tesla Model S climbing again to the top, with 553 units and 4,9% share.
The Nissan Leaf had an off month, selling "just" 337 units with 3,0% share and dropping to #8 overall and #3 in the compact/c-class cars segment, behind the Volvo V40 and VW Golf.
The third EV in the Top 10 was once again the VW e-Up! registering 294 units and 2,6% share, enough to grant it a #10 overall and the leadership of the city/A-class car segment.
A new plug-in has landed, the long-awaited Peugeot Partner EV van was #4 this month with 156 units followed by the Volvo V60 Plug-In in #5.
The YTD ranking crowned for the second time in a row the Nissan Leaf as the Best Selling EV, with more than half of the market, followed by the Model S, firmly in Second (23% share) and the last place of the podium went for the VW e-Up! a car that has been warmly received in Norway.
The Best Selling PHEV title went for the Volvo V60 Plug-In, which stolen the title the Prius head in last month of the year.
Looking into 2014, the YTD EV share should end somewhere between 12% - 14% and Nissan Leaf will have a hard time to renew the best selling title, not only Tesla is running incredibly strong, but both the VW e-Golf and Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will also be strong contenders. As for the manufacturers title, that should go for Volkswagen, thanks to the strong E-Up! / E-Golf tandem.
