Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In Canada - September 2013

2011 Chevrolet Volt red
Volt Sales Are Down 29% Through 9 Months
For September 2013's results, GoodCarBadCar has altered the way Canada's worst-selling vehicles are displayed. Rather than showcasing only continuing nameplates and rather than placing an arbitrary price point under and over which vehicles are other mainstream or niche players, all vehicles are eligible. 

There are notes below which mention the vehicles which sold in September 2012 but not last month - we've left out all 0-unit vehicles, which obviously leaves out vehicles which suffered a 100% year-over-year decline. 

Reasons behind the change? For one thing, manufacturers are frequently announcing the cancellation of a vehicle's production well in advance of actually eliminating the nameplate from their lineups. More importantly, it seems more useful to show the vehicles with sales that are disappearing fastest instead of showing only the vehicles which (apparently) have a future but are selling less often.

Sedans In 2013, None In September
To make room for these expired vehicles - the defunct Hyundai Veracruz, for example, and the on-hiatus GMC Canyon and Audi A3 - we've expanded each list from 10 to 20 vehicles. The first list shows the 20 vehicles with the worst year-over-year Canadian sales declines in September; the second focuses purely on the lowest-volume vehicles, regardless of whether sales are rising or falling.

You can always select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page to find historical monthly and yearly sales figures from both Canada and the United States. Pertinent links are clickable at the bottom of this post, but you can also find related links at the Best Sellers page.
