In April, sales of the Nissan LEAF checked in at 48 units in Canada.  That’s a substantial decline compared the 82 units Nissan sold there in March.  However, March was a high-water mark for the LEAF in Canada, and 48 is a 84.6% improvement over last year.

For the Chevy Volt, 64 copies were sold to the country north of us, after selling 76 a year ago.

In terms of year-to-date numbers, the total for the LEAF in Canada now comes in at 204 units.  That’s a 117% percent improvement of the 94 units Nissan sold by this time in 2012.  The Volt has sold 241 units this year versus 210 last yea, good for a 15% gain.

As mentioned last month, part of the LEAF sales bump can also be attributed to clear-out deals on remaining 2012 inventory.  2013 inventory is expected at Canadian dealerships in May.

Also on sale in Canada, Mitsubishi sold 24 i-MiEVs versus 22 in 2012.  It is worth noting that Mitsubishi sells a 2013 model year i-MiEV in the country (you can check i out here), whereas only 2012s have been made available in the US.

    Unfortunately, Canadians don’t get anything close to the same prices that are offered in the U.S. Leasing is particularly pathetic compared to the States.
