Large Car Sales In Canada - May 2015 YTD

2016 Nissan Maxima blue
Chrysler Canada, now FCA, traditionally reports a large number of Chrysler 300 sales every spring, and 2015 is no different in that regard. 300 sales increased 9% to 920 units, one-third of its year-to-date total is just one-fifth the time. Chrysler sold 884 300s in April 2015.

Last year, FCA averaged 343 monthly sales of the Chrysler 300 but sold 844 copies in May and another 807 in June. However, these figures are well off the pace from May 2012 and May 2013, when 1196 and 1426 300s were sold, respectively.

The 300's fraternal twin from Dodge, the Charger, trailed the 300 in May but leads the Chrysler by 247 units on year-to-date terms. 

Canadian sales in this category are up 5% so far this year, but don't interpret that as a sign of rude health. Compared with the first five months of 2013, rather than 2014, sales of large, volume brand cars are down 19%. 

A new Nissan Maxima, pictured above, is arriving at dealers now. Don't expect Nissan to challenge the top Detroit nameplates in terms of outright volume, but after Canadian Maxima sales fell below 2000 units in 2013 and below 1000 units in 2014, expect big gains.

* Genesis refers only to the sedan, not the coupe. For Canadian purposes - Hyundai USA doesn't yet breakdown sales figures for the sedan and much less costly coupe - the Genesis will now be shown with both these volume brands, with which Hyundai is a direct competitor, and midsize luxury cars, with which the Genesis competes.
GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
