Commercial Van Sales In Canada - January 2015

Out of thin air, the Ram Cargo Van was Canada's best-selling commercial van in January 2015. Not just the best-selling small commercial van, but the best-selling commercial van overall, 90 sales ahead of the second-ranked Ford Transit.

The Ram C/V ranked third in December, sixth in calendar year 2014, and second in January of last year. 

Leading the class in January is also not as difficult a feat as it will be in, for example, May, when last year's fifth-month sales were 156% stronger than first-month sales. 

The Ram Cargo Van owned less than 8% of total commercial van sales in May of last year, when it ranked sixth overall.

But the commercial van category is in a state of upheaval at the moment. As traditional leader Ford replaces its E-Series with the Transit - the best seller in America in January - and General Motors adds a Nissan NV200 copy to its fleet and FCA/Chrysler Group begins marketing the Fiat Doblo as a ProMaster City and sees its Grand Caravan/Town & Country/Cargo Van factory temporarily shut down in Windsor, it's difficult to forecast the results from one month down the road, let alone five or six.

  1. With the rear electric motors that disengage after 80 mph, only one who would buy would by an Acura salesperson, someone one walking in with a lease turn in, or a Honda fan.

  2. Thanks for including near luxury marques like Acura and Buick. The Verano's 43,000 units doubling most in near luxury and luxury segments mention expemlies the heart of this segment.

  3. Weighs the same as the brand new TLX v6 AWD. But this Chrysler can be had for almost $20,000 less with discounts you won't find on the Acura.
