- The state of electric vehicles in Canada
More than 11,000 plug-in electric vehicles have been sold in Canada since 2011. The Chevy Volt leads the pack account for 37% of all EV sales in Canada, while the Nissan Leaf and the Tesla Model S come in second and third respectively. Those three vehicles represent more than 70% of electric vehicles sales in Canada so far.
As of the end of 2014 plug-in electric vehicles have 0.27% of total vehicle market share in Canada. Roughly speaking one out of every 300 cars sold in Canada is an EV. That's grown almost ten fold since 2011. In the U.S. electric vehicles have more double the market share they enjoy in Canada with EVs making up one of every 150 new vehicles sold.
In the U.S. the Chevy Volt wins the all time sales record with 73,757 cars sold, then the Nissan Leaf at 72,322 followed by the Toyota Prius Plug-in at 38,088 and the Tesla Model S with an estimated 35,817 cars sold.
