It doesn’t look as if this data has been centralized on the web yet, so I’ll start.
Cumulative Canadian (PH)EV sales through Nov 2012 can be found at this link, here:
The list is incomplete (for example, no Tesla data yet) but I’ll be trying to add that in, with each monthly update. I’ll also try to get a province-by-province breakdown of the numbers, if and where possible. Nothing like a little internecine rivalry to accelerate EV adoption eh?
Various notes include:
- Canadian (PH)EV sales are currently running at about 4% the US rate. Given the 9:1 population ratio, one would expect sales to run at roughly 11% the US rate. Part of the reason for the lower run-rate is that most models seem to’ve launched first in the US, and arrived in Canada only later.
- the Chevy Volt holds an “iPod”-like dominance in the Canadian EV market, comprising roughly 75% of sales. (The Volt looks to have about a 40% market share in the US.) Who a few years ago would have thought that the company that brought out the Hummer, would have a sales lead in an eco-category, any eco-category?
