Canada Auto Sales Brand Rankings - July 2013 YTD

2013 Dodge Dart silver
The Dodge Dart Was Chrysler Canada's
Best-Selling Passenger Car In July
Canadians are buying pickup trucks in record numbers, and the growth in the category is powering the market to greater heights in 2013. Canada's leading manufacturer slowed in July as the Chrysler Group took over the top spot. Weather likely played a role in slowing the growth of the Canadian market in early July.

Ford Canada car sales rose 3% in July, but the F-Series posted its first year-over-year decline (just 1.3% down) this year. Chrysler Canada's best-ever July was fuelled by a massive improvement in car sales (up 20%) and the Ram Pickup's continued ascent. 

Porsche sold an identical number of Caymans and Boxsters, which, when combined, outsold the 911 by 35 units. Kia Canada derived 56% of its volume from the Rio, Sorento, and Forte.

Honda sold 6065 Civics, 3269 CR-Vs, and 1646 Accords. Simply put, Nissan's July should mark the beginning of a recovery after a not-so-brief period in the doldrums of decline.

Including the Sprinter, 311 of which were sold in July, the luxury leader in July was Mercedes-Benz, 364 sales ahead of BMW. No brand posted greater gains, percentage-wise, than Jaguar, although Nissan, Honda, Subaru, and Ram were volume brands with big improvements. Suzuki, a dying brand, slid 33%. Lincoln Volvo, and Scion reported significant losses, and Chrysler sales plunged on falling 300 sales.

All in all, car sales rose 12% and accounted for 44.5% of the market, up from 42.7% at this time last year, according to Desrosiers. The market share owned by the Detroit Three slid, however, from 48% in July 2012 to 44%.

  1. Even though I am a dual citizen, I am always surprised at the small
    population of Canada, given its geographic size. I’m guessing several states have larger markets than the country, given that they have largerpopulations. However, I am willing to bet their fleet sales are outsized in ratio to the populace due to their resource extraction and farming economies. The two years I worked fleet out of Calgary (’86-87),I’ll bet Johnson Controls and Schlumberger each purchased 1000 trucks. Iwould expect that number dwarfs most states of any size. In those days,everyone was an expanding buyer if oil broke the $30/bbl.threshhold, and an idle bankruptcy looking to happen when under $25. Of course, it took only 69 cents to buy a Canadian dollar, so many fleet buyers would purchase loaded up SuperCabs, put an MPH speedometer in them, and importthem to the U.S., undercutting U.S. dealer invoice by as much as 10%.
    We spent several months verifying registrations as Ford was really
    pissed and threatening franchises, even though Canadian law made it virtually a toothless threat. Truly a “hero on the 31st – zero on the
    1st” scenario. I kind of miss the action of witnessing fortunes made andlost in the span of the same year. And, of course, drinking my
    breakfast during Stampede. Totally acceptable in Calgary during those 10 days. Really.
