Electric car tops Norway’s auto sales

An electric vehicle topped car sales in Norway for the first time last month, a sign that drivers think unconventional autos are affordable and suited for cold-weather climates.

The U.S.-made Tesla S electric vehicle accounted for 5.1 percent of new car registrations in September, according to the Norwegian Road Federation, an industry watchdog group. The Volkswagen Golf finished second with 4.6 percent, followed closely by the Toyota Auris.

Electric vehicles overall captured 8.6 percent of the Norwegian auto market in September – up from 5.2 percent during the same period last year – despite some concerns that alternative fuel technologies don’t hold up under difficult driving conditions.

Tesla enthusiasts said the strong sales showing proves that electric vehicles are road-ready in Norway – even in remote regions high above the Arctic Circle.
