The Norwegian new car market is down 1% year-on-year both in February at 11,246 registrations and year-to-date at 22,631 units, but remains by far the most electric European market: if the VW Golf reclaims the pole position this month thanks to 488 sales and 4.3% share, it is only 4 units above the Nissan Leaf which remains the best-seller so far in 2014 at 1,134 units and 5% share (+105% on 2013!) vs. 1,016 and 4.5% for the Toyota Auris and 953 and 4.2% for the Golf.
