EMC is happy to unveil its report on electric vehicle sales in Canada in 2018!

2018 Highlights:

  •  93,091 electric vehicles (EV) on the road in Canada
  • The number of EVs increased by 90% in the country
  • EV sales grew by 125% compared to 2017
  • EV sales counted for 2.2% of all passenger vehicle sales

It would be an understatement to say that 2018 was a good year for EV sales. To put it simply, the 2017 records have been shattered. In only one year, the number of EVs in Canada almost doubled to reach 93,091, a 90% increase over the previous year. At this pace, we will easily pass the 100,000 milestone before reaching mid- 2019.

When we take a closer look at sales growth, the picture is even better. EV sales in 2018 increased by 125% compared to 2017. Remember that the 78% increase registered in 2017 over 2016 was already an impressive record in itself.
