Tesla 3 is the best-selling electric car in Canada in 2022 – L’annuel de l’automobile

The Tesla Model 3 retained its spot as Canada’s best-selling electric car before its sibling, the Model Y, and the Ford Mustang Mach E rounded out the podium.

Another difficult year

2022 has been another tough year, especially if you’re among those looking to buy an electric car. The waiting period regularly exceeds 18 months and often almost two years. Overall sales in Canada were down about 20%.

More and more players

Big names like the Hyundai IONIQ 5, Volkswagen ID.4 and Kia EV6 were big players in 2022, as were several luxury EVs like the BMW iX, which had a successful first year. Of course, Tesla remained the EV sales champion in Canada, taking first and second place in 2022 EV sales. As usual, Tesla sales in Canada are not officially reported. Nevertheless, the following numbers provided by Automotive News’ data center are generally considered to be as accurate as possible when it comes to Tesla sales.

Tesla and Hyundai in the top 5

The Tesla Model 3 was the best-selling electric car in Canada in 2022, with approximately 14,400 units sold. The Model Y leapfrogged the Kona EV into second place last year with nearly 8,000 units, while the Mustang Mach-E dropped from fifth place to third place in 2021. The Hyundai Kona EV, which finished as the second best-selling EV in Canada in 2021, fell to fourth place, largely due to the fifth-placed IONIQ 5 having its first full year of production. With more than 10,000 Hyundai EVs sold in Canada last year, Hyundai has consistently outpaced every other automaker in Canada except for Tesla when it comes to total EV sales.

The Chevrolet Bolt also had a strong 2022. GM provided us with numbers for the Bolt EUV (6th place) and the Bolt (7th place). Combined, the Bolt was the 4th best-selling EV in Canada in 2022, selling 5,963 units. Volkswagen ID.4 (2166 units), Nissan LEAF (1542 units) and the new Kia EV6 (1460 units) complete the top tier. 10.
