Plug-In Electric Car Sales In Canada March 2017
Once a quarter, Canada’s plug-in electric vehicle sales chart has enough info that we feel it’s worth sharing.
You see, many automakers don’t break out plug-in sales in Canada, so less than a handful of models get their monthly sales totals published in a timely fashion, with a few additional models getting filled in quarterly or one month behind, then the rest once a year or so.
With that in mind, here’s a rundown of March sales results in Canada, followed by Q1 totals and Tesla results (one month behind) for the models with sales figures available right now.
- Chevrolet Volt – 377
- Chevrolet Bolt – 241
- Nissan LEAF – 144
- BMW i3 & i8 – 48 combined (not broken down by individual model)
- Mitsubishi i-MiEV – 10
Q1 2017 Totals
- Chevrolet Volt – 899
- Chevrolet Bolt – 333
- Nissan LEAF – 322
- BMW i3 & i8 – 91 combined
- Mitsubishi i-MiEV – 19
Clearly the Chevrolet Volt is the runaway leader in Canada, but it may face some pressure from the all-new Bolt EV, as Canadians are gobbling up all the available inventory as it becomes available.
January & February 2017 For Teslas
- Tesla Model S – 100 January / 128 February
- Tesla Model X – 114 January / 72 February
A few other low-volume models are reported a month behind schedule too, like the Mercedes-Benz GLE 550e at 3 & 3 sold in both January and February.
