Canada Auto Sales Brand Rankings - April 2013

Porsche Canada Sold 32 Caymans In April
With its best sales in more than ten years, Ford Canada grew its year-to-date lead over the Chrysler Group to 1699 units through the first four months of 2013.

The Ford brand was pushed forward by more than 12,000 F-Series sales. Chrysler, meanwhile, sold more than 8000 Ram pickups.

The growth reported by these two trucks is representative of the improvement reported by Detroit's brands so far this year. Through four months, FoMoCo, Chrysler Group, and General Motors are up 5.2%. Import nameplates, excluding Chrysler's Fiat, are down 1.6%. This has as much to do with the "import" reliance on passenger cars, which are down 2.9% this year, as it does Detroit's reliance on trucks, which, as a whole pickup/SUV/minivan category, are up 5%.

Canada's leading luxury brand in April was Mercedes-Benz, although we'll wait to see how much of the 143-unit victory over BMW disappears when Sprinter totals are tallied. 


(Update: Excluding Sprinter, Mercedes-Benz sold 2525 vehicles in April; 9376 year-to-date. That puts BMW 136 sales ahead of Benz in April, but Benz leads by 155 through four months.)

Through April, 15 brands have reported year-over-year declines in Canada. Buick, Jeep, and Lincoln are the only American brands, although Fiat (having plunged 26%) is Detroit-associated. Dying Suzuki is off 36% this year. Volvo and Smart's declines are among the worst. On the flip side, the five biggest year-over-year gains so far in 2013 belong to premium brands: Jaguar, Acura, Porsche, Cadillac, and Infiniti.
