At some point in April, the Nordic nation of Norway will become the first country in the world with one electric vehicle on the road for every 100 cars. Last September Norwegian auto buyers took to the Tesla Model S in droves and the electric vehicle topped monthly sales charts. In October, the zero emissions Nissan LEAF was the best seller. There are now nearly 24,000 plug-in electric cars registered, and EVs account for more than three percent of car sales. The LEAF currently dominates the market – so far in 2014 there have been 1,478 LEAF’s sold to Tesla’s 563 units moved.
