Electric vehicle sales keep increasing at an impressive pace in Canada to a point that they are now representing a meaningful percentage of overall car sales.
During the first quarter 2017, electric vehicle deliveries reached a record high of 1,474 units (BEVs and PHEVs) – up 68% over the same period last year.
The arrival of the Chevy Bolt EV and the Hyundai Ioniq Electric in Canada helped boost EV sales in the country during the last quarter with 300 and 9 deliveries respectively, but Nissan and Tesla are still the market leaders.
Between the Roadster, Model S, and Model X, there are now 6,900 Tesla vehicles in Canada or 42% of the total PEV market share in the country.
Tesla delivered 400 Model X SUVs in Canada during the first 3 months of the year alone.
