Minivan Sales In Canada - March 2014 YTD

2012 Nissan Quest
Nissan Canada Says The Quest
Is Now Special-Order Only
The class-leading Dodge Grand Caravan owned 49% of the Canadian minivan market in March 2014 and its twin, the Chrysler Town & Country, was the second-best-selling minivan in the country.

Compared with the first quarter of 2013, sales of big minivans (oxymoronic term, we know) are up 5% to 17,449 units in early 2014. 

Prompted by moderately high volume from the Kia Rondo one year after it was entering a low-volume replacement phase, sales of properly mini-minivans are up 20% this year. The Rondo, Mazda 5, and Chevrolet Orlando accounted for 15% of the minivans sold in Canada in March 2014.


Minivan sales as a whole jumped 13% in Canada in March 2014 and are up 7% year-to-date. This follows a March 2012 when 8426 minivans were sold and a 2012 Q1 in which 21,524 were sold. In other words, minivan sales in early 2014 are improved year-over-year but are down 6% compared with the first three months of 2012.

GoodCarBadCar has developed a new, slightly more interactive chart format and is using this March minivan sales post as a test bed. It's still expandable - though quite large to begin with - but you can find sales data for both March 2014 and March 2013 (rather than just one month of data in the old chart format), and it's also significantly more attractive. Don't hesitate to share your opinions. The sortable table format with a complete round-up of information is still visible below. 


You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly Canadian auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page. This table is now sortable, so you can rank minivans any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page.
