Tesla’s 2018 deliveries in Norway now trending nearly twice as high as 2017
With US electric vehicle maker Tesla Motors having stabilized the monthly deliveries of its vehicles after recent issues, the sales of the company’s electric vehicles (EVs) in Norway have increased almost two-fold as compared to the 2017 figures.
According to Norway’s recent registration data, Tesla has delivered more than 3,000 EVs in the country since the beginning of 2018, as compared to the same-period deliveries of just over 1,500 EVs in 2017.
The noteworthy increase in the Tesla EV deliveries in Norway has enabled the country to achieve new records in EV sales this year. Thanks to the new records, EVs now account for the majority of new vehicles sales in the country’s market.
Despite the fact that Norway is a small country, it has been Tesla’s top market for several years now. Whenever it appears that the Tesla EV sales in Norway are peaking, the automaker’s sales in the country surge again.
The recent increase in Tesla EV sales in Norway has come after the automaker’s shipments to the country were hit by some issues earlier this year. One of the main issues was linked to Tesla’s cyclical production process, due to which the automaker produces large batches of its Model S and Model X vehicles for specific markets. As a result of the process, Tesla shipped EVs in huge numbers to some markets, thereby affecting the shipments to Norway.
