Tesla has reported a milestone in Norway. The company has seen the 100,000th registration of its EV in the country of about 5.4 million people.

Norwegians are the dream of any EV maker because they are among the most open people to electric cars. The country has the highest percentage of EVs in automobile sales of any nation in the world, as shown by new car registration data. It seems the Nordic people like Tesla in particular, as they have registered the 100,000th car of the popular brand.

Tesla also set the record for the most registered cars in a year, a month, and a quarter. It is also noteworthy that the EV company was responsible for more than 10 percent of all car registrations in Norway, with ICEs included.

The Model Y is very popular, breaking a record set by the iconic Volkswagen Beetle in 1969. The electric car sold 16,702 units from the beginning of 2022 to December 22nd. The Beetle sold 16,699 in its best year, and the record remained for 53 years before being broken by Tesla. With more than a week left in the year, it is likely that even more Model Ys will be registered.

Tesla achieved this feat despite facing increasing competition from companies like NIO and Xpeng.
