2018 Nissan Leaf registrations in Norway are rising fast

2018 Nissan Leaf registrations in February (Norway)

While first deliveries of the new 2018 Nissan Leaf in Norway started early this month, it was only in the last few days that registrations increased considerably. In the last 3 days 112 units were registered in the EV leading country.


In Norway, when supply isn’t a problem, the best selling car is usually the Volkswagen e-Golf, which this month has already 321 units registered. However, the new 2018 Nissan Leaf isn’t very far behind with 264 units and could become the best selling electric car this month in Norway.

Curiously, both these electric cars lack a TMS (Thermal Management System) to protect their batteries, which isn’t a big problem in cold climates.


Anyway, it’s obvious that the 2018 Nissan Leaf is just a stopgap until Nissan releases the e-Plus version, nonetheless this won’t stop the 2018 MY from sharing the highlights with Tesla Model 3 during the course of this year.


What do you think? Will the 2018 Nissan Leaf dominate EV sales globally this year, or just in countries where the lack of a TMS isn’t a big problem?


Thanks Michał for the heads up.

My interest in electric transportation is mostly political. I’m tired of coups and wars for oil. My expectation is that the adoption of electric transportation will be a factor for peace and democracy all over the world.

According to jada or jp (dots missing, one has to use google translator) nissan delivered 3768 leafs in Japan in January. It might be rebound after qc scandal however, and not sustainable number. Still impressive. In later part of the year a lot will depend on model 2019 introduction schedule and pricing. But during 1st a 2nd Q Leaf will be hard to beat globally.

We are apparently getting them already in Canada now too: https://www.plugshare.com/location/10187

This PlugShare station has a photo of 4 new ones at a Nissan dealer in Kingston, Ontario, which is a small city.
