Commercial vans, some of which might be used to ferry passengers around, found 1722 buyers in January 2013. There was a great deal of parity in the market. Of the top five vans in the seven-van segment, none managed more than 24% market share; none worse than 12.3%. Only the Nissan NV and Ram Cargo Van existed as low-volume players.

NV sales rose 44% to 88. Ram C/V sales fell 90% from 475 (in its best month so far) to just 50 units in January 2013. The class-leading Ford E-Series was up 3%. Ford’s other commercial-oriented van, the Transit Connect, posted a 184% improvement. 

Meanwhile, Canadians purchased or leased 5694 minivans in January, a figure which includes 993 truly mini minivans.
