The top-selling ‘green’ carmakers in Norway in March were Nissan and Tesla. According to the figures, Nissan sold 2,172 units of LEAF during the month, while Tesla’s total monthly sales of Model X SUVs and Model S sedans stood at 1,403 units.
The notable monthly sales of battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in Norway implies that March 2018 was an excellent month for ‘green’ transportation in the country.
