Tesla Reaches 60,000 Registrations In Norway

A bit of interesting news comes from Norway, where Tesla car registrations just exceeded 60,000, including all four models (the original Roadster, Model S, Model X and Model 3).

The Model 3 is now noticeably above the Model S with over 25,000 (as of early March 17, 2021):

  • Model 3 – 25,010
  • Model S – 21,123
  • Model X – 13,833
  • Roadster – 111

Moreover, due to volume deliveries usually cumulated in the last month of a quarter, Tesla Model 3 is now leading March registrations with 1,155 units, several times more than the second-best Audi e-tron (293).

 

With such a high rate of deliveries, the Model 3 might even beat the Audi e-tron in Q1, as today the difference is less than 200 units:

  • Audi e-tron – 1,736
  • Tesla Model 3 – 1,552
  • Nissan LEAF – 1,201

Those results are not bad and proves that Tesla is doing well in Norway, although the model mix is evolving (fade of Model S/X in the recent years).

In terms of the highest total number of registrations, the Nissan LEAF is beyond the reach of any other plug-in model:

  1. Nissan LEAF – 66,730
  2. Volkswagen e-Golf – 47,652
  3. BMW i3 – 28,521
  4. Tesla Model 3 – 25,010
  5. Tesla Model S – 21,123
  6. Kia Soul EV (e-Soul) – 20,834
  7. Audi e-tron – 16,914
  8. Renault ZOE – 14,441
  9. Tesla Model X – 13,833
  10. Hyundai IONIQ Electric – 11,905
  11. Volkswagen e-up! – 11,342
  12. Hyundai Kona Electric – 10,908

The Model 3 should soon beat the BMW i3, which is probably on its last legs, although the gap to discontinued Volkswagen e-Golf is still high, and Nissan LEAF is doing just fine, gliding with a few hundred units a month.

The Volkswagen ID.3 is currently at over 8,000 (ID.4 is at just over 200) so there’s still a lot to do to join the top models that were introduced earlier.

It will be also very interesting how fast the Model Y will go up once it finally appears in Norway.
