Sales figures for EVs in Canada for the third quarter of 2018 are now out, and show that Nissan Leaf and Tesla Model 3 are leading the way in battery electric vehicle sales in the northern American country.
The Leaf was first introduced to the Canadian auto market back in 2011, and has seen a steady (if not at times fluctuating) increase in sales, according to figures and estimates from Green Car Reports.
The figures show that for 2018, there were 4,481 Nissan Leafs sold in total, while total sales of the Leaf have now reached a milestone 10,000 of Nissan’s popular EV sold for all time, making it the most numerous EV in Canada (followed by the Tesla Model S at 7,519).
But these figures are followed closely by sales of the Tesla Model 3—4,295 in fact—which was released onto the Canadian car market only in May 2018.
