With 1,493 electric Model S Sedans sold in March, Tesla broke it’s all time sales record
in Norway, according to figures released Wednesday.
The number – more than double its typical monthly sales – cements the automakers popular footing in the Nordic region, which is Tesla’s No. 2 market.
Though only populated with five million residents, Norway is popular to automakers because its people have aggressively incentivized green vehicle sales. Owners of electric cars may charge their vehicles for free at one of the area’s many charging stations and drive in high-speed driving lanes. They also receive large tax incentives for driving green cars.
Tesla’s March success more than tripled February’s winner, the Nissan Leaf, which sold 484 cars.
Tesla has four stores in Norway, including two in Oslo and two more on the west coast. It’s been a hot ticket since it debuted in the region in September.
