Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In Canada – August 2015


2013 Honda Crosstour brown rear

Although discontinued and temporarily offline Hondas ranked as the three worst-selling vehicles in Canada in August 2015, a large number of mainstream vehicles cracked the top 20 last month.

Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model – August 2015 YTD

We’ll see a new Honda pickup truck in the coming months. For now, the current Ridgeline is on hiatus and sales fell 96% in August, 83% this year. The Honda Crosstour has no future. The Honda CR-Z is basically a special order car in Canada. 

The Dodge Dart and Nissan Altima, however, compete in Canada’s two highest-volume car categories. Dart volume plunged 70% in August 2015, a 461-unit year-over-year decrease. 

Altima volume dropped by more than half, a 58%, 664-unit decrease compared with August 2014. Annually, Altima volume has declined in seven consecutive years – 2015 volume is down 27%.

Among the lowest-volume cars in Canada, premium brands held nearly exclusive rights. Only the all-electric Mitsubishi i MiEV, the same Honda trio, two Kia sedans, and high-priced sports cars from Dodge and Nissan interrupted.
