Canada December 2013

Another win for the Volt in Canada. But the competition will be stronger in '14...

Changes Edition

With 3.041 EV's sold in 2013, the Canadian market grew 54% regarding '12, reaching a respectable 0,18% EV Share, mostly thanks to increased sales from the Nissan Leaf (470 units in '13 vs 240 in '12), full year sales from Tesla and new models from Ford.

Despite this, #1 went for the Chevy Volt, but it's now far from the domination it had in 2012, when it owned 67% on the market.

The Second Placed Tesla Model S was the only model to bother the Chevy leadership, winning three monthly #1's (March, July and September) and that performance could have been better if Tesla didn't had production constraints....Just like the #3 Nissan Leaf, which also had them in the Tennessee factory. 

The rest of the ranking had several changes in the last days of the year, with the Ford C-Max Energi climbing to #5 and the Smart Fortwo ED to #6, with the I-Miev, which had a terrible month of December with just 2 units sold, dropped to #7, while the Fusion Energi climbed one position to #8.

For 2014, both Tesla and Nissan aren't expecting production constraints, so both of them can have a go at #1, testing for the first time Chevy leadership in Canada.
