A man Who Owns Seven Tesla Electric Cars (In Norway)

As we have said previously in this Blog Norway is known for its love of electric cars, but there's one Norwegian who loves them more than most.

A recent Tesla Motors blog post tells the story of a "superowner" in the Scandinavian who not only has a Model S, but also six Roadster sports cars--apparently more Tesla electric cars than any other person on the planet.

Jens Kratholm is an opthalmologist living in the town of Narvik, located 136 miles north of the Arctic Circle--a place that's noteworthy in itself

Kratholm ordered his first Roadster sight unseen from a dealer in Denmark in 2010. It replaced a Volkswagen van.

Driving a two-seat, rear-wheel drive sports car in an Arctic environment seemed to be less of an issue than convincing his wife--Ellen Røsnes--that the battery-electric Roadster could perform as well as the Mercedes-Benz models she had her eye on...

Now, Kratholm is planning to buy an eighth Tesla--a Model X
