Which countries do have the most reservations holders and buyers of: Tesla Roadster / Tesla Model S

edited January 2013 in General
There is a map on which you can see where the reservation holders (or owners) of Tesla cars are located.

http://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=295135

The number one country is offcourse the USA.
But which country is second on that list?
I thinkt that The Netherlands is second on that list of countries.
And in third place there is Norway.
And in fourth place we have Belgium (the neighbours of The Netherlands).
The fifth place must be more difficult to predict: Canada or Switzerland or Sweden?

Anyway I am proud that The Netherlands is second on that list.

Does anyone have an other opinion on this?

    Oops error in the title.
    It should be: "Which countries do have the most reservations holders and buyers of: Tesla Roadster / Tesla Model S / Tesla Model X?"

    As the OP (Original Poster) you can edit it. Hold your pointer on the T logo, and the option will appear.

    The answer to all your questions (to date) is the United States.

    "The answer to all your questions (to date) is the United States."

    Most of the reservation holders are indeed in the United States, but not all of them. Other countries have reservation holders as well. Just look at the map.

    I have edited the initial post. Thanks.

    Looks like there are couple sold in Finland too. That's a bit surprising considering how BEV unfriendly our country is.

    Yes, it's really hard to distinguish EU sales by country, except that we know Norway is in the lead. Do the national forums give any clue?

    How do you know that Norway is in the lead?

    Maybe Tesla Motors will unveil this information at the end of the year.
  • edited November -1
    Tesla has said so several times.

    And have they given figures about volumes per country as well?

    No. But with Norway's small population it's quite remarkable that it's leading Europe in purchases, so TM has remarked on it!
  • edited November -1
    They say that Norway is leading Europe in purchases, but they have no figures to show for that assumption? Now that's quite remarkable, don't you think?
  • edited November -1
    No, TM gives no figures for any country. We surmise them by trying to track reservation # reports on the web.

    Norway has a fiscal regulation that allows Norwegian people to buy EV's at substantial lower prices than ICE vehicles. That's why many registrations are from Norway.

    I have spoken to a representative of Tesla Motors, and he has confirmed that Norway has the most reservations of all European countries.

    Very interesting to see that someone here in NOVA SCOTIA has/is getting one! Now I have to keep my eyes peeled and camera ready.

    Now why am I turning green? Is it environmentalism or envy?
  • edited November -1
    Really? Damn, I'll have to keep an eye out as well. Let me know if ya spot it.

    Elon Musk has mentioned in his latest Blog (A Most Peculiar Test Drive): "our highest per capita sales are in Norway".
  • edited November -1
    "per capita" can mean that Norway has quite a bit less reservations than for example Germany or France. There are nearly 20 times more people in Germany than there are in Norway even that they are nearly same size geographically (Norway is only slightly smaller than Finland or Germany).

    Correct

    Norwegians orders should be above 1000 now, I expect that we end up with 50% of the europe sales for the years to come ;-)

    The more the better.

    Money talks; Norway has suspended all taxes on EVs till 2017, but Germany has not. So the MS is the cheapest sedan in Norway. Not so, in Germany!

    All Norwegians should get a Tesla Model S or a Tesla Model X before 2017.

    Not only No tax on EV cars (tax on cars in Norway is around 110%) but also no tolls, no parking fees, no road tax, and you can drive in the taxi and bus only lanes , and free charging !
    Model S will be our second EV car...we're going all electric!
