Are there too many electric cars in Norway?

While electric car sales remain disappointingly low in North America, it’s the exact opposite in Norway, so much so that the existing infrastructure is unable to sustain the demand, according to local newspaper Budstikka.

Norway has the largest proportion of electric cars in the world, with more than 7,000 units sold in 2013 alone, for a total of 13,000. In September and October, the two best-selling vehicles — all classes combined — were the Tesla Model S and Nissan LEAF.

The popularity of electric cars in this country is growing so rapidly that the 5,000 charging stations (500 in Oslo) can’t keep up. What’s more, they represent around 75% of all the traffic in lanes reserved for alternative transit.
