Our Take On The Top 20 Best Selling Car Sales Numbers

A higher than normal proportion of the Canadian top-20 passenger car sales were taken by electric vehicles in August as the Tesla Model 3’s sales skyrocketed from 500 in July to 2000 through last month.

It wasn’t alone in the power surge. Despite the coming of autumn normally signaling the falling of leaves, the Nissan Leaf’s sales skyrocketed, with its newest incarnation clearly hitting the mark among eco-conscious Canadians.

August saw the Leaf outsell the Prius (despite its sales also being on the rise), Impreza, Sentra, Ford Fusion and Focus, while the Model 3 outsold all other luxury cars as well as the likes of the Volkswagen Jetta, Kia Soul and a mildly resurgent Toyota Camry.
