CANADA AUTO SALES FOR SEPTEMBER 2008


Unlike their counterparts south of the border, most automakers competing in Canada managed to post better sales this September than they did in September of 2007. (For USA auto sales last month, click here.) However, there were some losers. Most notably, Land Rover; Porsche; Saab; and Volvo. General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler like to lump most of their brands together in Canada, so it’s difficult to know just how badly Hummer is doing. Regardless, the statistics for Canada’s auto sellers for the month of September are below in order of total sales.
