The Tesla Model 3 hasn’t just been a hit in the United States since deliveries kicked off but it is also proving to be particularly popular across Europe too, as recent numbers show. But the country that’s definitely in love with Tesla’s baby EV is none other than Norway.
Sales details reveal 4,609 units of the Tesla Model 3 have been delivered so far across the country just this month (through Mar 29), with 792 being sold in February, according to Teslastats.
Norway has been lapping up electric vehicles so much so that in 2018, one-third of new cars sold across the country were EVs. The Nissan Leaf was the best-selling car in the North European last year, shifting 12,303 units, but it seems likely that the Tesla Model 3 will breeze past that figure this year and, if demand continues at that rate, it could prove to be 2019’s overall best-seller.
The Model 3 isn’t Tesla’s only popular model currently on sale in Norway as in March, approximately 400 units of the Model S and Model X were delivered.
These impressive delivery figures will play a significant role in helping the electric car manufacturer achieve its delivery goals for Q1 2019. Earlier this month, Elon Musk emailed all Tesla employees asking them to prioritize vehicle deliveries. The automaker revealed it wanted to deliver 30,000 vehicles globally in the final 15 days of the month.
