Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In Canada – January 2015


2013 Ford Flex red

Canadian sales of the Chevrolet Orlando plunged 87% to just 16 units in January 2015, the sharpest decline of any continuing nameplate that isn’t about to be replaced. 

• Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model – January 2015

Two Canadian-built FoMoCo crossovers ranked sixth and seventh among Canada’s most rapidly declining vehicles in January 2015: the Lincoln MKT and its fraternal twin, the Ford Flex. 

After selling like hotcakes when it was newly introduced in C7 form a little more than a year ago, the Chevrolet Corvette returned to ground level like the rear-wheel-drive car in winter that it is. Sales plunged 78%, year-over-year. 

Among vehicles which generated any measure of sales activity in January, the Hyundai Equus and defunct Nissan Cube were the least popular. Granted, automakers like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley, and Maserati don’t report Canadian-specific monthly sales figures.

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.
