Learn about the best-selling electric cars in Canada (2023)

November 8th, 2023 by

The high cost of gas has generated a lot of interest in electric cars (EV), but there are also many more possibilities now than a year ago. Although electric vehicles tend not to be very affordable, there are some excellent options available in a variety of body designs for drivers on a budget.

Taxes, freight/PDI fees, and federal EV rebates are included in the rates provided. If you live in a province or territory that offers additional rebates, your savings will increase even more. Starting with the most expensive, these are Canada’s five least expensive electric vehicles.

Below you can see learn more of the best-selling electric cars in Canada this year:

1.Nissan Leaf EV: The Nissan Leaf is currently Canada’s most affordable electric vehicle and was one of the first fully electric vehicles available in the country. The Leaf has evolved a lot since its inception and has become more sophisticated. With a range of 240 km, it also comes with a generous list of safety features as standard and one of the smoothest driver assistance systems in the industry.

2. Chevrolet Bolt EV: Like the Bolt EUV mentioned earlier, this hatchback version also has excellent value for the money and is even more affordable than its crossover sibling. It’s rated for about 417 km of range, but when I drove it, I regularly saw about 460 km. Like its crossover sibling, the Bolt EV is roomy and easy to live with, especially because it has a lot of useful information that helps with trip planning.

3. Kia Soul EV Premium: The Kia Soul EV is the third most affordable EV in Canada, and it’s one of my favorite ones on this list because of its iconic and funky style. The most affordable Kia Soul EV doesn’t have a ton of range with 248 km, but its boxy shape makes it roomy and practical. The controls inside also make it very easy to live with, even if you’re new to EVs, and Kia includes a long list of safety features as standard. I also like that the charging port is located in the front bumper, making parking at a charging station much easier.

4. Mazda MX-30: The Mazda MX-30 has a funky design, cool suicide doors, and upscale aspirations, but as the most expensive vehicle on this list, it must be noted that it has the least range at 161 km. That’s brutally low, and add in the fact that you can only buy this tiny SUV in BC and Quebec. I almost considered not even including it in this list, but facts are facts, and this Mazda is the fifth most affordable EV in Canada.While experts haven’t been impressed with the range offered, many have praised the MX-30 for being refined, stylish, and fun to drive.

The majority of these EVs come with larger battery packs and greater range, but they also come with higher sticker prices. The Chevrolet Bolt EV is the vehicle on this list that, if I had the money, I would purchase since it has the longest range without requiring an update to a larger battery. Of course, these are all excellent choices provided you have a charger at home and the low range won’t really be a deal breaker.

There will undoubtedly be more reasonably priced options soon as the EV market becomes more competitive, battery technology develops, and the cost of producing EVs decreases.
