THE BEST-SELLING EVs IN CANADA IN 2022
By Piero Facchin, January 30, 2023
Electric vehicles continue to take the Canadian market by storm and while the entire industry has struggled with all sorts of supply issues in the past year, even a drop in sales volume, the EV sector has seen its numbers increase.
In 2022, several new models contributed to this electric excitement; Hyundai introduced the IONIQ 5 and Kia the EV6, both of which were highly anticipated by the public. We finally got to see the first of Volkswagen’s ID lineup, the ID.4. In the luxury division, BMW was able to deliver the iX while already known models like the Nissan Leaf and the Chevrolet Bolt were refreshed.
But Tesla, which was already well ahead of the pack, remains the sale champion in Canada with the Model 3 in first place with 14,400 units sold, followed by the Model Y in second with 8,000 vehicles. Third place goes to the Mustang Mach-E, which jumped two spots from 2021.
The Hyundai Kona ranked fourth in 2022 sales in Canada followed closely by the IONIQ 5 which was in its first year of production. The Chevrolet Bolt EUV and its sister, the Bolt, finished in 6th and 7th place respectively. Volkswagen sold 2166 units of the ID.4 followed by the Nissan Leaf with 1542 vehicles. The Kia EV6 finished 10th in terms of EV sales in Canada.
