Commercial Van Sales In Canada – May 2015 YTD


2015 Nissan NV white

After surging 42% through the first four months of 2015, Canadian sales of commercial vans tumbled 17% in May 2015 because of sharp declines at General Motors, the near disappearance of the Ram Cargo Van, and a decrease from the leading small commercial van, as well.

GM’s full-size twins, the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana, jointly fell 61%, a loss of 828 sales, year-over-year. GM added only 48 sales of the smaller, Nissan NV200-based Chevrolet City Express.

Total Ram commercial van volume decreased by marginally despite ProMaster growth and an additional 183 ProMaster City sales because of the Grand Caravan-based Ram Cargo Van’s 98% drop. The Ram Cargo Van is based on the outgoing version of the Windsor, Ontario-built minivans that haven’t been built for much of this year.

Ford Transit Connect sales then tumbled 15% in May 2015. Nevertheless, overall Ford commercial van volume was up 3% in May 2015 because of the second-best month yet for the new full-size Transit, the E-Series successor. Ford owned 44% of the overall Canadian commercial van category, up from 35% a year ago.
