Nissan Leaf Sales Hit 1,000 in Norway

Nissan hasn’t exactly impressed with sales of the all-electric Leaf in America, despite the government incentives. However, the US isn’t the only place were EV are encouraged, as places like Denmark, Spain or the UK offer big incentives for people willing to plug in.

Sales of the Nissan Leaf have taken off in Norway, and over the past six months a thousand have been sold. Now, that might only be a month’s worth of US sales, but in Norway it represents 2% of the market. If we were to extrapolate that to he Light vehicles sales for all of 2011, which totaled 12.8 million in the US, we would get 256,000 Leafs sold last year. So the Scandinavian country is hundreds of times hungrier for EVs than American customers.

Norway is the country with the highest level of support in Europe for electric vehicle purchases with zero VAT, no new car tax, free parking, exemption from some tolls and the use of bus lanes in Oslo. The existing on-street charging infrastructure in Oslo currently has approximately 3500 public charging points in Oslo, many of them free to use.
Impressive for a major supplier of oil. Guess even they know it will run out!

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
