EV sales: 214% Year-over-year growth

Canadian EV Market overview

Cumulative EV sales for all-time has reached new heights. The Canadian EV market has now hosted nearly 70,000 Plug-in EV (PEV) purchases. An even split between 35,000 Battery-electric Vehicles (BEV) and 35,000 Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV). That’s impressive because it was this time last year that we were blowing the party-whistle over 40,000 PEVs total.

The massive expansion in the EV market began last year and has gained momentum throughout the latter-half of 2017 and again in the second quarter of 2018, with a brief lull during January and February of 2018.
