Plug-In Sales For Canada: Nissan LEAF Up 86% Over Last Year, Chevy Volt Off Slightly
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.
