Norwegians Embrace Nissan Leaf EV, the Country’s 13th Best Selling Car in 2012

Norway really seems to have taken a liking to the all-electric Nissan Leaf, and reports now show that since the car went on sale in the country, in October of 2011, more than 3,300 have been sold. In 2012, it alone accounted for 1.7 percent of the entire Norwegian car sales figure for the year, with 2,298 units shifted.

Going even further, it was Nissan’s second-best selling model, after the Qashqai crossover, which beat it by a difference of 599 vehicles, and 13th bestselling car overall in the market.

This amazing popularity is down to many things, but primarily the fact that Norwegians seem to be very open-minded and environmentally aware, as well as having the necessary financial power to experiment with owning an electric cars. The use of bus lanes in town, no taxing, free standard charging everywhere you go (around 3,500 regular chargers) and 65 DC fast chargers scattered around the country all form part of the attraction.
