Canada Plug-In Electric Vehicle Sales September 2013: Chevy Volt Continues Its #1 Reign
The Chevy Volt remains the plug-in vehicle to beat in Canada as it sold 59 units in September, bringing the YTD total to 656. Volt sales checked in at 84 units in August.
Meanwhile, sales of the Nissan LEAF, the typical #2 holder in Canada, checked in at only 36 units. That’s down from the 56 sold in August.
Tesla Model S sales in Canada are not known for the month of September, but we peg them to be roughly on par with the Volt/LEAF.
The rest of the pack of plug-ins sells in incredibly low volume in Canada. Here’s that September sales breakdown:
- Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid: 7
- Mitsubishi i-MiEV: 20 (equalling US result – although Mitsu still ships 2013 product to Canada)
YTD totals for the four reporting plug-ins sold in Canada look like this:
- Chevy Volt: 656
- Nissan LEAF: 382
- Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid: 190
- Mitsubishi i-MiEV: 148
