February 2013 Canada Auto Sales Brand Rankings

Fiat 500C Sales Fell 26%
In Canada In February
Canada's new vehicle market was dragged down by big import brands like Toyota, Hyundai, Honda, and Nissan. As the Chrysler Group, Ford Motor Company, and Chevrolet reported 2%, 5%, and 3% improvements. 

Predictably, Canada's new vehicle market was stronger in February than in January - it always is. In 2012, however, the Canadian market grew 9.5% from January's 97.5K sales to February's 106.7K sales. Not only was January 2013 weaker than January 2012, February volume was only 8.2% stronger than January volume.

Sales of non-GM/FoMoCo/Chrysler brands fell 7% in February 2013. The Detroit trio (including Fiat) produced a collective 2% improvement. Of course, the desire Canadians have for trucks - and the ability Ford, Ram, and GM have to provide buyers with trucks - help with this. 46% of Ford's Canadian volume came from the F-Series, which continues to sell more and more often. Just like Porsche, which continues to improve on a record 2012.

Suzuki Canada is starting to look more and more like its now-defunct U.S. counterpart. No brand reported a worse year-over-year decline in February. Aside from low-volume Jaguar, Chrysler was the most improved brand, rising 35%. Jaguar nearly doubled sales from very little to a little bit more than very little.

Premium brand victory was captured by BMW-beating Mercedes-Benz. We'll wait and see if the Sprinter commercial van made that possible, or if it offered nothing more than an un-needed boost.

  2. chrysler group is bigger than general motors in canada as all its brands are in top 20 other than fiat. of them dodge and ram are leading brands. similarly hyundai is bigger brand in canada than honda and other japanese brands other than toyota. for me it is the best asian brand and wil takeover toyota too shortly if it enters truck market in canada.
