Early December 2012 Canadian auto sales figures from Chrysler show a mixed bag, not unlike that which we'll likely see when the full slate of manufacturers have reported their year end figures later today. Dodge and Ram produced narrow gains, Jeep slid 12%, Chrysler continued to improve, and Fiat sales jumped 58% compared to last December.

While 2012 year end sales figures are reported in the table below, this post ranks brands by December volume. In order to see brands ranked by 2012 totals, you'll want to check out the 2012 Year End Canada Auto Sales Brand Rankings post. You'll also find 2011 year end totals there.

Ford Motor Company's December 2012 hit was a painful one, but it wasn't a cross-brand issue. The Ranger's disappearance was keenly felt. Yet with Ford's downfall, Toyota's sharp decline, and Chevrolet's slide - in addition to drops at GMC and Nissan - the Canadian automotive market stood little chance at posting a collective improvement in December. In fact, Canada-wide volume fell 5% year-over-year. Sales were down 13% compared with November.

Throughout the day model-by-model breakdowns have been updated and made available through the dropdown menu at GCBC's Sales Stats home. You'll find historical monthly and yearly totals for every brand competing in Canada and the U.S. by using the same dropdown menu. (A handful of brands don't report specific Canadian model-by-model data until next week.)

The U.S. version of this post has already been published. A huge number of Canadian best seller lists will be published in the near future. And Honda sold 6666 Civics in Canada in December. That's weird.
