November 2012 Small, Midsize, And Large SUV Sales In Canada

Sales of large, mainstream brand sport-utility vehicles are up 0.3% in November 2012. At first glance, this seems more than a little odd. 

As much as the North American new vehicle market has grown this year (up 6.5% through eleven months), growth in this category is not a matter of course.

U.S. new vehicle sales are up 14% through November, yet sales of these large SUVs are down 11% in America.

Four of the seven SUVs in the table at the bottom of this post have suffered year-over-year declines in 2012. The best-selling Ford Expedition is up 8%. The worst-selling Nissan Armada is down 9%. Twins behave similarly? Sales of the identical GMC Yukon and Chevrolet Tahoe stand at 1023 units through eleven months.

Of course, these big truck-based sport-utilities only account for 0.4% of the Canadian new vehicle market. For every Expedition Ford Canada sells, 24.5 Escapes find buyers.  

For all the Tahoes and Suburans and Yukons General Motors sells in Canada, the company sells 7.6 copies of the Equinox and Terrain. 

The Nissan Rogue is nearly 27 times more likely to be sold than the Nissan Armada. Toyota's RAV4 is 35 times more popular than the Sequoia. 


That should offer some perspective. Small SUVs and crossovers account for 19% of all new vehicle sales in Canada this year.
