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