236 copies of the electric car Nissan Leaf rolled last year silently from the Norwegian dealers every week.
at Home should Nissan dealers spend a little over four months to reach the same figures with just 12 cars sold per week. And, not surprisingly, ended up the total sales figures a good distance from each other. While the norwegians, according to Tek.no bought 12.303 copies of the japanese electric car in 2018, just came 637 according to the FDM in Danish hands.
the Sales figures were nonetheless high enough to make the model the most sold electric car in both countries. But it is, after all, one who came in third, which means more in Norway than in Denmark.
In 2018 was the Nissan Leaf, thus, also the most sought after cars on the Norwegian market, and even well ahead of the previous favourite, the VW Golf, which was sold button 9900 copies of.
at Home went the title as the most sought after car for the second year in a row for the Peugeot 208. It is a car that neither is available with electric motor or hybrid technology, which emits 79 grams of CO2 per kilometres driven with the latest diesel engine.
According to the FDM rolled there last year 8776 copies of the little frenchman from the Danish negotiators.
Completely without klimasamvittighed, the danes are not, however. On the top 10 list of the most sold car models in a total of four, available as either a hybrid, pluginhybrid or pure electric vehicles. How big a part of the sale, the 'green' engine types in all stands, are, however, difficult to figure out.
For comparison, only one car model in the Norwegian top-15 list driven by fossil fuel, and pure electric cars stood for 31.2 percent of total sales. It writes the ABC News.
Even though Norway's most sought-after car was sold in a slightly more copies than its Danish counterpart, bought the norwegians actually fewer cars than danes in the last year. Button 148.000 were registered in Norway against 220,000 in Denmark.
electric car popularity in Norway is because they are exempt from tax, and that owners can also new good of incentives as free parking, the right to drive in bus lanes and free passage through the toll booths, which are set up around several Norwegian cities.
the tax Exemption means, for example, that a Norwegian bilkøber can get rid with 212.000 Danish kroner for a Nissan Leaf, while in Denmark, it costs 287.000 dollars. According to the news agency Ritzau says the 40,000 norwegians currently on a waiting list for an electric car, and the experts expect that almost half of all cars sold in Norway will be electric by 2019.
