Nissan Leaf Is 4th-Best-Selling Car In Norway In 2013, #1 In October

Nov 1 (Reuters) – Nissan’s all-electric Leaf became Norway’s top-selling car in October for the first time, extending a success for electrics after Tesla Motor Inc.’s Model S led September sales, official statistics showed on Friday.

Norway’s five million people have been among the most enthusiastic buyers of electric cars thanks to high subsidies, free parking and recharging points, avoidance of road tolls and use of bus lanes to avoid queues in commuting.

Last month, 716 Leafs were sold, or 5.6 percent of all cars sold in Norway, and ahead of the Toyota Auris on 679 and the Volkswagen Golf on 646.

So far this year, the Leaf is the fourth-biggest selling car with a 3.2 percent share.

“It’s the first month that the Leaf is on top,” Paal Bruhn of the car retailers’ association, which compiles the statistics, told Reuters. “And it’s the first time with electric cars on top two months in a row.”
