Canada Plug In Electric Vehicle Sales March 2014 – Chevy Volt Still #1
Guess which vehicle topped the plug-in electric vehicle sales chart in Canada in March.
It’s no shocker that the Chevy Volt was #1 again in Canada. In all honesty, it seems unlikely that the Volt will ever get knocked off this pedestal. The Volt has been Canada’s top-selling plug-in vehicle for more than one year now. Sometime way back in 2012 the LEAF outsold the Volt, but since then it’s been all Volt in the #1 spot.
Here are the March 2014 sales results for Canada:
- Chevrolet Volt: 105
- Nissan LEAF: 75
- Tesla Model S: Ballpark estimate of 20 to 40 units
- Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid: 13
- Mitsubishi i-MiEV: 12
We won’t have data on Ford’s plug-in vehicles anytime soon, as the automaker only spits out those numbers for Canada on a semi-annual basis.
In terms of 2013 YTD numbers, here’s how plug-ins fared in Canada:
- Chevy Volt – 931
- Tesla Model S – 610
- Nissan LEAF – 470
- Toyota Prius Plug In – 212
- Ford C-Max Energi – 199
- Ford Focus Electric – 158
- Mitsubishi i-MiEV – 168
- Ford Fusion Energi – 116
(estimates for the smart ED are ~250 units for 2013)
