    Doing some random searching about, I just stumbled on this:
    Registreringer av nye elbiler i Norge
    Gives me a bunch of early VINs (including some North American sequences that I never saw get registered here) so I can see the ones that went to Norway. I assume a bunch of them were "gray market" imported by Ferdinand in the early days of Roadster.

    ( Notice how the wide bumper cutout fits the Norwegian plate so well. )

    Looks like someone took the site down... :(

    Guess I spoiled it by mentioning it here...

    Did you get the information you wanted before it disappeared?

    I did... :)

    But only for Roadsters. It was a wealth of information on other EVs I thought I might look into someday.
    Also, if anyone imports more Roadsters to Norway, I won't be able to see that anymore... :(
    But I think there won't be too many more anymore.
