Canada Auto Sales Brand Rankings - May 2015 YTD

2014 Honda Civic
Auto manufacturers collectively reported a Canadian monthly sales record of nearly 198,000 units in May 2015, a modest increase compared with May 2014 fuelled as much by a handful of overperforming brands as it was hindered by a handful of underperforming brands.

On one hand, Mini, Porsche, Lincoln, Land Rover, Infiniti, and Fiat - niche brands with relatively small followings - posted gains ranging between 20% and 77%. They were joined by Jeep, with a best-ever performance of 9527 sales, as well as Nissan, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Audi, all of which reported year-over-year improvements of at least 22%. 

Yet Smart, Dodge, Buick, Mazda, Jaguar, and Chrysler all posted losses measured in the double digits. Ford volume slid 9%. Kia was down 7%. Honda and Hyundai both reported 4% declines.

As a result, auto sales growth slowed to just 1.1%, a meaningful figure given the record-setting overall number, but representative of a slowdown after the 4% expansion through the first four months of 2015.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles continues to be Canada's best-selling manufacturer and now leads the Ford Motor Company by 13,595 units heading into June. At this point last year, FCA was 7355 sales ahead of Ford MoCo but ended the year well back of the Blue Oval. Ford's namesake Ford brand is the top-selling auto brand in Canada. Mercedes-Benz led all premium brands in May 2015. Excluding Sprinter vans, Mercedes-Benz finished May 470 sales ahead of BMW; 1830 ahead on year-to-date terms.
