    The detailed statistics aren't out yet her in Norway, but there were some interesting tidbits to glean from the simplified statistics released today.

    This month Tesla sold 185 Model S here, or 1.6% of all cars sold. That makes Tesla the 17th biggest car brand here, ahead of Honda, Citroen, Suzuki, MINI, Renault, Fiat, Cheverolet, Lexus, Land Rover, Porche, and a dozen or so others.

    Nissan sold 448 Leafs, or 3.8% of all cars sold. And other manufacturers sold 67 other all-electric cars.

    All electric cars took a total market share of 6.0%, which is the largest market share yet. Will we se 10% by the end of the year? That would be awesome.

    Also, digging through some more statistics, it appears that the Model S is the 14th most sold car model this month. The only car model from a premium or luxury car maker to beat the Model S is the Audi A3. (Also the Volvo V40, if you consider Volvo premium.)

    Even though I am a Volt owner and pleased to see the increase there (no doubt tied to the $5K price drop by GM), the real shocker for me in this list is the Prius Plug-In. Toyota really seemed to phone this one in, but that's an impressive increase over last month. It should be an interesting rest of the year...

    Interesting "spike" in Mar/Apr and "dip" in Jul for Model S.

    Surprised how many Volts are being sold. Not good that Tesla sold half of normal volume in July--wonder what happened??

    Tesla numbers hopefully will start picking up again as positive momentum from press, etc hits orders.

    EU production happened. 190 Model S went to Norway from the July/August production, with more going to Switzerland and other EU countries, and even more are still in transit. At the same time also some modifications to the production process, like parking sensors.

    Final numbers on InsideEVs came in at 11,073 (0.75% of the US market - 1.47 million). Can be seen here, 8 Plug-Ins Set New 2013 Highs In August; Leads To 11,073 EVs Sold For Month. (sorry, don't know how to post images on here yet)

    The Tesla monthly numbers are estimates, by Jay Cole, which get corrected after Tesla announces their quarterly results. The reason for the surmised drop in July production was the one week shutdown to changeover for EU tooling, combined with cars being exported to EU. Remember these numbers are US sales numbers; read: deliveries to customers.

    Just remember this: Tesla monthly sales estimates are a wild ass guess and mean nothing. I've seen wildly inaccurate speculation of Tesla's monthly sales figures in the past.

    Looks like people are wanting to transition to EVs (sales on Volts), but not yet ready to give up the gas/long range.....Hopefully by the next generation LEAF and Gen III will this happen.
