Automakers in Canada sold a record 2.038 million new vehicles in 2017. According to DesRosiers Automotive Consultants, the light-truck segment (SUVs, vans and pick-up trucks) accounted for 68.6% of the sales.
The fight for the number one spot had the usual suspects, Chevy Bolt Vs Tesla Vs Nissan leaf. Chevy Bolt walked away with the bragging rights, topping the EV sales chart for 2017, selling 2,107 units.
Things should rapidly change this year as Tesla has already started its Model 3 deliveries in Canada, while Chevy Bolt is facing supply side issues.
Tesla is evidently starting Model 3 deliveries in Canada in a massive way with large shipments being spotted throughout the country including one with an estimated 1,000 Model 3 vehicles in Toronto.- Electrek
I am not going to make the mistake of counting GM out. Not now and probably never. It could be a photo finish between GM and Tesla because GM has already sold its 2018 Chevy Bolt production in Canada.
Whoever wins the production race will be the winner of Canada’s 2018 EV crown.
According to Greencarreports, Tesla sold a record 456 Model 3, 113 Model S and 21 Model X in May 2018 in Canada. Nissan leaf increased sales to 906 units while GM’s Chevy Bolt delivered 456 units in May.
IHS is forecasting Tesla to sell 1,850 Model 3s in June.
