The Nissan Leaf topped the list of newly registered vehicles in Norway this past October with more than 700 of the electric cars making their way onto Norwegian roadways.
The Leaf accounted for 5.6 percent (716 vehicles) of all the cars sold in the country last month, and is currently the fourth-biggest selling car in 2013 with a 3.2 percent share of the market. These trends are being seen in other countries as well, with Nissan announcing the sale of more than 30,000 models at the end of September in Japan.
The data was compiled by Opplysningsrådet for Veitrafikken (OFV), an organization that advocates building safer and more efficient roads in Norway. Paul Bruhn, OFV's head of registration data, reported that the Leaf beat out the Toyota Auris and the Volkswagen Golf, as well as the Tesla S, which topped the list in September with 616 vehicles sold.
