Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In Canada – March 2015


2014 Chevrolet Impala

Discontinued models like the Toyota FJ Cruiser, Chevrolet Orlando, Dodge Avenger, Subaru Tribeca, and Nissan Quest grabbed the top (bottom?) spots on March 2015’s list of the worst-selling vehicles in Canada.

Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model – March 2015 YTD

But they were joined by numerous other models which are, for a variety of reasons, not matching the sales performances they achieved a year ago. The Audi A7, Chevrolet Impala, Toyota Avalon, and Fiat 500, for example, aren’t defunct nameplates, nor are they awaiting a soon-coming replacement. They simply didn’t sell nearly as often in March 2015 as they did in March 2014.

When measured by Canadian volume, not year-over-year decline, the A7, Impala, Avalon, and 500 aren’t mentioned. But there are ultra-low-volume vehicles on the list which, unlike the Audi R8 and Porsche 918 Spyder, aren’t supposed to be ultra-low-volume vehicles. Consider the Kia Cadenza, Cadillac ELR, and Lexus LS, as examples.

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.
