Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In Canada - December 2013

2014 Mazda 6
It's Terrific. But Canadians Are Overwhelmingly
Rejecting The Mazda 6, More So Than They Did In
2012  When It Wasn't Popular To Begin With.
Not including nameplates which completely expired, 38 different nameplates reported Canadian sales that were half as much - or much less than half as much - in December 2013 than they were in December 2012. 

The sales figures for two specific vehicles, however, cause particular concern. German roadsters like the BMW Z4 are prone to fluctuation. Defunct pickup trucks like the Chevrolet Avalanche are naturally going to be on the downswing. But the Chevrolet Orlando's Canadian sales fell at a faster rate than sales of the long-since forgotten Mercedes-Benz R-Class in December. 


Mazda 6 sales fell 75% in December and are down 55% since the beginning of June. For every 6 sold in December, Toyota Canada sold nearly twelve Camrys. Fewer than four 6s were sold per day - holidays included - in December. 

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.
