Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In Canada – 2013 Year End


2012 Chevrolet Orlando white
As Canadian Sales Of The Chevrolet Orlando Fell 68% In 2013,
Sales Of Its Competition Fell, As Well: Mazda 5 Sales
Were Down 34% And Kia Rondo Volume Slid 3%.

Measured by year-over-year decline, the long-since expired Buick Lucerne was Canada’s worst-selling vehicle in 2013. Measured by volume, the Cadillac DTS, Lexus LFA, and Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren tied as Canada’s worst-selling vehicle.

Meaningless figures? Continuing nameplates filled many of the gaps on these two lists of Canada’s 20 worst-selling vehicles. The GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado were on hiatus, as was the Audi A3 for much of the year. But the Volvo S80, Honda CR-Z, Chevrolet Orlando, and Buick Regal suffered declines serious enough to be ranked among many defunct nameplates. 

And in terms of low volume, the Dodge Viper, S80, CR-Z, Hyundai Equus, Jaguar XK, and Audi R8 were among the rarest. (Most ultra-niche, ultra-expensive brands don’t report model-specific Canadian sales figures, if they report anything at all.)

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.
