Canada is doing fine this year with more than 40,500 of confirmed or estimated plug-in electric car sales during the first nine months (up 22% year-over-year).
There shouldn't be any problem with exceeding the full 2018 year (which was a record one) in October/November.
September itself wasn't the best month as, according to the EV Sales Blog, sales amounted to 4,737 (down 11%), but the market share of 2.8% is noticeable. For comparison, the average market share YTD is 2.7%.
With new investments in the fast-charging infrastructure, and generally the progressing plug-in cars offered, we are expecting more good news in the near future.
Plug-in electric car sales in Canada - September 2019
Just like in the U.S., also in Canada, the plug-in market is dominated by the Tesla brand (38% share YTD) and Tesla Model 3 model (33% share YTD), although we don't know precise numbers, as Tesla's results are estimated.
One thing is sure, Model 3 shines not only among plug-ins, but also in the wider midsize class, which was also pointed out in EV Sales Blog's report:
- Tesla Model 3 - 13,308
- Toyota Camry - 11,579
- Honda Accord - 9,089
- Ford Fusion - 7,280
- Mercedes C-Class - 5,423
Chevrolet Bolt EV (373 and 1,332 YTD) turns out to be the top all-electric model (#4 overall) aside from Tesla.
