Tesla Model S

It’s time once again to take a look at plug-in electric vehicle sales in Canada.

Less and less automakers report plug-in electric car sales in Canada now, so the list of vehicles below has dwindled down significantly to just a few of the major models.

The Chevrolet Volt, after selling 172 in November 2015 and 220 in December 2015, fell to just 94 units sold in January 2016.

Meanwhile, sales of the Nissan LEAF were low too at just 72 units in January 2016, down from 122 in December 2015 and 148 in November 2015.

It's likely that the Tesla Model S was the best-selling plug-in electric car in Canada in January, but those figures are not yet known. The Model S was #1 for 8 out of 12 months in 2015 in Canada and it ended the year with 224 units sold In December (#1 for the month) and 2,010 YTD (#1 for the year).

The remaining sales figures include 26 BMW i3s sold in January 2016 and 8 BMW i8s.

Cadillac sold only 1 ELR last month in Canada, while Mitsubishi sold 7 i-MiEVs.

Unfortunately, those are the only known figures for plug-in electric car sales in January at this time. Additional registration data will fill in some of the blanks at a later date.
