A record month for Porsche Canada resulted in a 48% year-over-year increase to 690 sales, the first time Porsche has ever crested the 600-unit mark in a month. The Macan and Cayenne accounted for 73% of the brand's April 2015 volume.

Honda reported a 21% jump in Civic sales in April, a gain of just under 1000 units. The Civic has been Canada's best-selling car in each of the last 17 years. Toyota Canada's overall total fell narrowly in large part due to car losses at both Toyota and Scion. Toyota's light truck total rose to a record high for April.

General Motors, however, outsold Fiat Chrysler Automobiles for the first time this year, knocking Ford Motor Company into third spot. Ford's namesake brand is the top-selling auto brand in Canada (full figures yet to be released), but hasn't yet claimed the top spot on a monthly basis in 2015 that it typically holds on a calendar year basis.


Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model - April 2015 YTD


Canada's fastest-growing auto brand in April was Mini. No volume brand grew faster than GMC. On the flip side, Fiat, Smart, Scion, and Mitsubishi all posted double-digit declines in April. Mercedes-Benz led all premium automakers last month. 

Industry-wide sales jumped 6% to 189,000 units. Through the first one-third of 2015, auto sales in Canada are on a record-setting pace, up 4% year-over-year. GM, Ford, and FCA combined for 44.4% market share.
