    Never mind Lotus. Tesla beat both Aston-Martin & Ferrari. Holland rocks!

    How many people in Norway?
    Any idea how many roadsters sold in 2010?
    Nice number of sales anyway!

    I think I read 18 or something somewhere but I can't find the numbers I'm afraid.
    There are about 4,9mill people in Norway. Yes the sales are pretty good, and add almost 2000 EVs this year as well, mostly MiEVs and Leaf's

    So in Norway Tesla had +/- 25% rise in sales!

    I guess with so many EV-sales in Norway, Norway probably has the most EV's per citizens!

    What's interesting to me is the good sales in cold climates. Coincidence? Or a reason for it?

    I guess the taxincentives have more to do with it!

    I think in Norway you pay 100% tax on gascar, and 0% on electric!

    In Holland is also something like that! But it's more complex! I do not understand the way it works!

    More than 100 sold in Switzerland alone (Population 7.8 million). The reasons?
    - Sports car country with many nice Alpine trips on your doorstep.
    - Short distances (Zurich-Geneva 280km).
    - Electricity everywhere.
    - Right from the beginning in 2009 very professional sales staff were at work. Perfect deliveries to your door, cars licenced with plates, all paper work completed.
    - Later then a very well located sales and service center was established with now in addition very experienced sports car technicians/mechanics.
    - There was never any trace of "startup pains". They could have sold Porsches or Ferraris equally competently. A good approach if you want to survive at the higher end.

    In addition to the good reason you mentioned, probably wealth was also a significant factor, no?

    Wealth certainly affects the sports car segment as a whole, but I am uncertain about an eventual effect on the relative proportion of Tesla Roadster sales in that segment. With the early adopters probably masking still the true market potential I would hesitate to draw any conclusions. The "chasm" is still around the corner (*).

    Orginallay quoted from JCSTP "In 2010 24
    In 2011 40

    "

    Now that's a statement to the work that TM has put into its products. If the trend continues...the rest of the industry will only have to respect TM, the Raodster and the Model S for what they bring to the table.

    Tdelta1000, could you link you comments to what you are referring? I like to read your contributions but don't enjoy scrolling and trying to figure out whose comments you are referencing to.

    :)
