Believe it or not, they are having decent sales here in Calgary. I believe they are selling approximately 30 cars per month.



Is it really that high now? I recently read that both Calgary and Edmonton only have about 150 fully electric cars registered in each city. Assuming a few are Nissan Leaf's, Ford Focus, and VW Golf's, it would seem hard to believe Tesla is selling 360 a year in Calgary.

I mean I assume the sales are increasing steadily, but that still seems high for cars that cost $100-250K.

This doesn't sound like something that won't make insurance rates skyrocket on their cars at all.

That kind of data takes a few years of history to get on the books for analysis. I've never actually priced one out though.

Subsidization and federal support of EV will boost the sales further. Maybe it'll happen to Canada one day, like in Norway!

Canada has it at provincial level:

Ontario: $14K off
BC: $5K off (MSRP of EV must be under $77K)
Quebec: $8K off

It sucks when all these provinces have PST to make it match or more than the grants.

Rich off oil money...

Would help more if Canada as a whole stopped being a bunch of jackass hippies and just embraced oil so we could do the same
