Chevy Volt Sales Set Single-Month EV Record In Canada
OCT 27 2017 BY ERIC LOVEDAY
Chevrolet Volt sales set a single-month record for plug-in electric vehicles in Canada.
While we don’t typically cover Canadian plug-in sales due to lack of automaker’s reporting figures, every so often something of importance pops up in the numbers.
For example, in September, sales of the Chevy Volt in Canada hit an all-time high of 483 units sold.
That’s not just an all-time high for the Volt, but the highest single-month figure ever record for a plug-in vehicle sold in the Great White North (aka Canada).
For the year, Volt sales stand at 3,007 YTD. A solid figure that’s almost three times more than any other reported plug-in. The next closest is the Chevy Bolt at 1,292 units YTD and 227 sold in September. So, Chevrolet is running #1 and #2 in Canada for the year with the Tesla Model S, X and Nissan LEAF rounding out the top 5.
By now there’s a burning question everyone wants answered. The question is, which vehicle prior to the Volt held the all-time monthly high in Canada. Answer…the Chevy Volt. The Volt sold 446 units last September, which stood as the all-time high until this September when the Volt knocked itself off the pedestal and reached new heights.
Keep your eyes peeled Wednesday, November 1st for our all-encompassing U.S. sales report for October (the most current edition of which one can find here). Will Bolt sales continue to grow as LEAF sales drop off? Where will Model 3 sales be? We’ll find out answers to those questions and more soon enough.
