Large Car Sales In Canada - November 2015 YTD

2017 Buick LaCrosse
As GM Canada approaches the launch of the third-generation Buick LaCrosse, sales of the current model enter free-fall mode. Even before Buick introduced the new LaCrosse at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Canadian sales of the LaCrosse were declining. But November sales slid 48%.

Is it enough that the new LaCrosse is a stunning, righteously Buick sedan? Across North America, consumers are losing interest in full-size sedans, opting instead for very roomy and more affordable midsize cars or three-row crossovers. Consider the fact that the LaCrosse and all its competitors generated only 1408 Canadian sales in November 2015 while the highest-volume midsize car, the Honda Accord, produced 1306 Canadian sales on its own.

Year-to-date, much of the segment's increase has been powered by the launch of a new Nissan Maxima and the clear-out of older Maximas. 

Sales of the LaCrosse, Impala, 300, Taurus, Genesis, and Avalon have all declined through the first 11 months of 2015.

* 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.
