Nissan LEAF at Nissan Delivers 1000th LEAF In Norway

Nissan’s trendy electric hatchback LEAF achieves another milestone in sales, this time in Norway. The Norwegians have embraced the LEAF very well, as in just six month Nissan has delivered 1000 units of it to customers, taking almost 2% of the total car market in February this year. That makes the LEAF the second best-selling Nissan in Norway.

There’s good reason why Norway loves the LEAF so much. The Scandinavian country has the highest support for for electric vehicle purchases in Europe, with zero VAT, no new car tax, free parking, exemption from some tolls and the use of bus lanes in Oslo. There’s so many advantages that you can easily justify the drawbacks of EV motoring.

The 1000th car handover took place on 25 April at 12.30 in front of the Ministry of Environment where the Minister Bård Vegar Solhjell handed over the keys to Nils Haugerud. Also attending was Birger N. Haug the dealer responsible for selling this car and 550 of the 1000 sold so far, making him one of the largest volume LEAF dealers worldwide.
