Ontario leads the nation when it comes to snapping up the most electric cars. They’ve beaten Quebec for the first time ever.
According to data compiled by Fleet Carma, 7,477 battery and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles were sold in Canada’s most populous province.
That compared to 7,194 sold in Quebec, followed by 3,270 in British Columbia.
Ontario’s sales increased 120 per cent from 2016, when rebates increased.
There were a record 18,564 electric cars sold across Canada last year, up 68 per cent from 2016.
All-electric BEV sales outpaced plug-in hybrids (PHEV), led by the Chevrolet Bolt and followed by Tesla models X and S. The Chevrolet Volt was again the most popular plug-in electric vehicle.
It’s the future and as the cost of electric cars drop it will become even more popular. – CINEWS
