Canada Auto Sales Brand Rankings - February 2016 YTD

2016 Honda Civic Hatchback Concept Geneva
After a hugely successful January in which 2016 Canadian auto sales began with a bang, February 2016's Canadian results built on the first month's impressive results with a 9% increase valued at 10,000 additional sales. Never before have Canadians purchased and leased this many new vehicles during the month of February.


Canada Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model - February 2016 YTD


Compared with February 2015, the three largest manufacturers in Canada – Fiat Chrysler, Ford MoCo, General Motors – combined for 5393 extra sales in February 2016. Though passenger car volume was down by more than 5% across the board, "light truck" sales (including minivans, SUVs, crossovers, commercial vans, and pickup trucks) jumped 18%, more than offsetting the 2000+ lost sales among cars to claim 67% of the market.

Volkswagen is now truly dealing with the impact of last autumn's diesel emissions scandal. February sales plunged 28%, a year-over-year loss equal to 1303 sales following January's 726-unit decline. 

Volkswagen's German compatriots fared rather well last month, however. Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche combined for 6.4% of the industry's sales: 7630 units in total, an 18% increase, far outpacing the industry's rate of expansion. No premium auto brand sold more vehicles than Mercedes-Benz.

The Hyundai Elantra, clearing out in advance of a new model's arrival, was Canada's top-selling car. Honda Civic sales grew in comparison with February 2015 but the rate of growth was severely curtailed by a stop-sale on certain models. (Honda revealed their new Civic Hatchback Concept at the auto show in Geneva today. It's pictured above.) Hyundai sales nevertheless declined as Sonata volume plunged 79% and numerous other models decreased, as well.


• FCA tops all manufacturers
• Ford is Canada's best-selling auto brand
• Hyundai Elantra Canada's best-selling car in February
• Toyota RAV4 Canada's best-selling SUV/crossover
• Smart, Volvo, Scion, Land Rover, Cadillac, Jeep the fastest-growing brands
• Sharpest declines reported by Fiat, Chrysler, and Volkswagen


Meanwhile, at Canada's top-selling manufacturer, year-over-year growth grinded to a halt as the gains produced by Jeep SUVs and Ram pickup trucks are very nearly offset by passenger car declines and sharp overall decreases at Chrysler, Dodge, and Fiat. Only 5% of the vehicles sold in FCA's Canadian showrooms so far this year have been passenger cars.
