In June, Tesla Model 3 Was Canada’s #1 Selling Electric Car Of All Time
Tesla sold some 2,329 Model 3 in June, which is over 36.6% out of the total of 6,352 plug-in electric cars sold, which by the way is a new record (up nearly 220%) at a record-shattering 3.17% market share.
The Tesla Model 3 was the 16th best-selling model in Canada in June, gas and diesel included.
With some 3,135 sales in the first three months on the Canadian market, Model 3 is already above any other all-electric or plug-in hybrid model this year, despite being several months late to entry for 2018.
Two-thirds of all Canadian plug-in car sales in June occurred in Ontario, which offered high incentives of up to $14,000 CAD that in July were cancelled.
July shows signs of weakening as the estimated number of registrations stands at 3,346. The result for the Tesla Model 3 is expected to be at around 350 (over 10% of all electric car sales).
Higher sales than Model 3 in July were noted by the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (598 – new high) and Nissan LEAF (decent 418). Two other PHEVs with strong sales are the Toyota Prius Prime (381) and Chevrolet Volt (276).
