Electric vehicles accounted for more than half of Norway’s car sales in March, making history in the country following record registrations of Tesla Inc.’s Model 3.

Per inhabitant, Norway already boasts more electric cars than any other place on Earth thanks to generous incentives. Last month, new registrations of electric vehicles climbed to 58 percent of the total, according to figures released on Monday by the Norwegian Road Federation.
