Funnily enough, it's actually the French fleur-de-lis which is responsible for these victories: Fully three-quarters of all Volts sold in Canada this year--745 of 963, or 77 percent of sales through July, based on registration data--have been sold in Quebec, despite the province only hosting one-quarter of the country's population.
